    Currently I am unemployed and so when I found out that my PC broke (this is a friend's) I was devastated to realize that Windows XP (Pro or HE) both range around $100 for the standard full edition. I am currently running it off of Bart PE but that isn't much help because I can't even view pics or access the internet. My other friend told me however that you can get Windows XP as cheap as $70 for the stripped down, "No Manual, No Colorful Box," edition. Problem is... I can't find this mythical store/site. Is he bluffing or does this place exist (and where?) Thanks heaps :p

    If you contact the mfg. of your computer, you may be able to buy recovery disks for about $20.00. Some do not charge for them.
    worth checking out.

    $89.99 posted above looks legitimate. Beware if you find XP Home for some rodiculous low price and the website does not show a company name, address or phone number... and the only means to contact them is an email form. A search at dns411.com usually shows the website domain registered in some country you never heard of, or doesn't recognize it at all.
