Buy XP Pro license and CD (5 actually)
Hi, I'm doing a favour for a friend who works at a private, charitable school. They want to buy 5 laptops, and I have found an excellent deal, but it doesn't come with an OS. I'm happy to install a new OS and build the machine, but...
The school are using XP Pro on their network, with no imminent change to Win7 or Vista. Where's the cheapest and best place to buy XP Pro?
I came across Microsoft Windows XP Pro SP2 (OEM) which sells it for £70 exVat, which seems good.
As they aren't a government funded school, they can't use a county supplier and get cheaper versions, and I'd need to have the XP Pro CD to do the installation.
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
