I noticed Trinity's "external website" while looking for XP on Amazon. It's the best price anywhere, and I took their word for it that I could install it on any PC (even though it is Dell OEM). It worked just fine on my custom-built PC (running Intel motherboard, i7 cpu, SSD...just use IDE in BIOS and make sure you have the latest BIOS update.
Trinity shipped FAST! I had it in 3 days from order date.
Why buy XP so late in the game? I wanted to create a gaming PC before XP and XP supported devices go away...Windows 7 just doesn't run yesterday's games, and I don't want to toss them.

Legit product, cheap price and quick shipping! This item shipped within several days for a very low price compared to other companies. It's a legitimate genuine copy of Windows XP and came as shown and described. Couldn't be happier with this product and will definitely order from here again.
