Yes, if you pick a model that doesn't have an XP-down
option there might be a chance that some of its HW
won't work with XP. So the choice is buy an XP unit
before the end of June, buy one with Vista and the
downgrade option, or at least make a note of which
models are available now with XP so you can grab
one used in a year or two and blow away Vista in
favor of your own XP CD.

And one gotcha relating to "downgrading" a new computer
from Vista to XP is that you may find that some of the
newer devices that are inside the shiny new computer do
not have XP device drivers available for them based on the
assumption that the devices would only go into new
computer models that always had Vista installed at the
factory. This is one underlying reason why some computer
manufacturers don't offer any kind of XP option.
