    New printer

    I'm going to get a refurb w Win 7, and keep one desktop w XP off the internet. Will a new printer compat w Win 7 also be backward compat with the Win XP puter?

    No guarantees. They would use different drivers.

    What type of printer were you thinking of getting (inkjet or laser, and brand)? Personally, I would go with a brand that still has XP drivers. Brother should have something that would work.

    Probably inkjet, what I always get, none planned yet till I received my replies here. I'll check online first.
