I have a 7570 that seems happy with Windows XP. I have heard of people having trouble with it, but my son made some quick adjustments and it was fine. I think it would be a good first machine--I have been happy with the stitch quality. Some parts of it aren't the latest/greatest, but it works fine and produces results with a little attention to the details. Hope this helps.

I use my 7570 with XP - there was a discussion on the Threads website about this recently. I love my 7570 - it is a fabulous sewing machine and is really highly regarded as one of Pfaff's bests efforts. As for embroidery, I use it but the technology is much better today than when this machine came out. I won't replace my machine anytime soon but if I decide to get into embroidery big time I would look at stand alone embroidery machines. At this time, I just like to piddle with mine. HTH

This was my first embroidery machine (I now have a Ellegante). I kept my 7570 when I got the new one, and I still use it all the time - sometimes when the Ell. is doing a long embroidery, but also because I think the regular stitching and non-hoop emb. stitches can't be beat. Esp. on difficult fabrics. THe hoop embroideries are pretty good, but the main limitation is the size and the very clunky software (very outdated, but did work on XP). Good if you only plan to use it occassionally for embroidery and worth it for the other stitching anyway. If you have a great regular machine anyway, you might want to consider just buying a standalone embroidery machine (there is a singer one that links to your computer) with a bigger hoop and better software as you will soon find the 4" hoop limiting.
