yes...it can run on XP..till i've heard...
i dont know clearly...if dell dealer says NO then i am not sure...ask any other company.....BUT I THINK YES,AS i3 is a processor and XP is an operating system...
Core i 3 is supportable for win xp .. because win xp is a multi core Operating system.. so no worries..
sometimes.. when some people with little knowledge of pc ... they thend to tell lies or etc to the customer.. it is a plead to them to make the customer use win 7 or vista ... i am sure even if you buy win xp now... microsoft still make money..
hey thanks for reply... but i just quit i3 n purchased c2d(as it is equal or more in performance.. )
I had checked both in terms of performance. thanks fk
If in doubt whether the dealer is giving out the right solution, you can always ask Intel in house experts.

I believe XP does not allow for use of two physical processors, only two logical.
