If you have a mac you wont be changing the hardware so use an OEM copy

OEM means that Microsoft allow you to install it as many times as you want on the same computer. If you change the motherboard or something you will need to ring Microsoft (FREE PHONE) to re activate it.

Retail copy allows you to install unlimited amount of times but it will add £100 on the price tag

Dont worry OEM is fine

Why would you buy software from eBay?

They prob write down your serial before dispatch

then thats all your moneu in the bin!

Yeah I wouldn't trust eBay for Software either, besides it's not the bargin basement it used to be. eBuyer's probably the best bet for XP, although personally I'd plump for Pro not Home.

Ian182, what exactly does your Bro need Windows for? There's very little you can't do straight on the Mac these days.

google search for it, plenty about

Just bought an OEM copy from ebuyer myself, worked great and is much cheaper than buying a normal store copy:thumbsup:
