    Can anyone tell me where to get the best deal on Windows XP pro. I need to buy another copy to install on another PC but don't have much money :( right now.

    Thanks

    If you have a copy of XP Pro already, why don't you go to MicroSquish's Site and find out about purchasing another License and just install it using the one you have now on your other Computer.

    Or if that is too expensive, hit the Computer Shows in your area and see if any one is selling it for cheap.

    Also...if your a college student or KNOW someone who's in college...you can get a REALLY cheap discount through the college store, for example here at University at Buffalo, students get their copies for under $50 !!

    I always hit up BestBuy,


    But here is a lil arning, back when XP first came out, I went over to Ebay.com to buy it. I found one for $49.99. The buyer claimed is was brand new, still sealed in box. He even had homemade picyures of it sealed up, and it looked legit. So I brought it. When it arrived, it was in a regualr cd case, and on top of all that, it was a SamSung CD-R disc, and to make things worst, it had no liscense key nor did the cd work. The cd was blank.

    Microsoft had a special running where by providing them a business name(ficticious) they sold me a full, sealed, legit copy of pro for $39.95 plus tax and shipping. Came to just about 50 bucks. They say one per customer, but when they ran the special again, I entered a different email address and ..lo and behold, I bought a second full, sealed, legit version of Pro for again, about 50 bucks delivered. Check it out..don't have the link now, but I'll look for it.
