HI Everyone

I wanted to remind you that Microsoft is pulling XP from manufacturers production lines.


  • Per Microsoft, OEMS will no longer be able to ship systems with XP Professional and XP Home after October 22, 2010. This date is final.

Based on this requirement, Dell must stop taking XP orders in September to allow the factory to clear inventory by Microsoft’s deadline. Time must be allotted for order processing, financial holds, part lead times, and other normal manufacturing processes to flow.


The only way to get XP from Dell after September is if you send us an XP image to load on your systems via our Custom Factory Integration process. This incurs a $30-$40 fee per unit


Please forward this email to others on your campus that require this information.
