Hi: I am considering buying my first laptop. It will come with Vista I assume. I currently use a Dimension 8200 with XP Pro. I know very little about these things but am wondering if the two machines will be compatible with each other if I want to create a network between them (work on the laptop and retrieve and exchange data form the desktop if that is possible). Thank you. (lots to learn:emotion-42:
See THIS as it looks like what you want to know about networking Vista and XP.
