$100-125 is better, I paid that off amazon for XP pro for another comp I have. The problem I have with that though is that it took me 2 rma's to get a key that actually worked. brother-in-law had a similar prob. with different seller. Have been reluctant to buy oem again from 3rd party sellers. My other problem is that I now have 4 comps that will have to eventually be OS upgraded from XP, so even at $100 it puts a dent in my wallet. Sorry to get off topic, I have a tendency to do that.
ps- someone want to move this to the win7 slot?
