    That depends if selling a Nero disc labeled "BUNDLE WITH HARDWARE ONLY - NOT FOR RESALE" without any hardware is considered legal. Then again the seller could include a single screw used for mounting a CD burner and call it a hardware "bundle".

    That is a pretty amazing price for Office 2003.

    Strange, but the link I first posted did not take me to the CD for sale but instead took me to the "home" page where many other items are listed. :confused:
    I just went to the link again, c/p it and here it is again:
    http://www.surpluscomputers.com/store/main.aspx?p=ItemDetail&item=SWW13452
    Now the question is, what changed it?

    BTW, John, I did not understand your comment. Guess I missed "something".

    My comment was as stated, that's a pretty amazing price for a licensed copy of Office 2003. What part of that statement didn't you understand? :confused:

    Just as confused John so guess I understood none of what you said about Office 2003. Where are you coming from in that regard? Where is Office 2003 mentioned in the link I posted? And BTW, what is the price?
    Can anyone else relate to his comment?

    Thanks aarhus2004 but that is not the link I posted. He must have gone on from there searching for "other" things. Little wonder I couldn't figure out his remark:(

    Exactly cwwozniak. The CD is all the link is addressing and that was my intent to pass on to everyone. Thanks for your reply. John just wandered around clicking on some of the links on the left side of the linked window I sent and caused his remark to be disassociated with the intent of my thread.

    I think that there may be some kind of funky link created in TSG's server. The target URL matches exactly the shortened version shown on screen. I had thought that when pasting a long URL into a new posting, it would be displayed with shortened text but the actual link was the full URL.

    Well John being the super sleuth he reportedly is, he will find an answer. Otherwise, I have said all I can say.

    It was on the page, which seems to change hourly. Here's the price and product I was referring to, which I saw on your link when I looked: http://www.surpluscomputers.com/store/main.aspx?p=ItemDetail&item=SWW12430
