There are many ways to get hold of a copy of Windows XP. First of all, you have to decide which version you are after. The first decision to make is probably the most important.
Types of operating system The two main types of the operating system are OEM and Non-OEM. OEM copies will only ever work on one computer and should this computer fail, or you start using a different computer, you will not be able to transfer this operating system across. This is where Non-OEM comes in, you are able to use the operating system on one PC at a time, but you can install it on another PC if you take it off the PC in use. Home or professional version The second decision is whether you wish to purchase the home or professional version. The professional version is more expensive, but does have some advantages which can be read at Winsupersite.com. This is great for you if you are looking at a laptop to install Windows XP.

However, care must be taken to make sure that you are getting a legitimate copy, but many companies on Ebay offer great deals. Companies rather than individual sellers are the best for buying operating systems. Make sure that they have 100% positive feedback and if possible, buy with PayPal as this gives you extra protection. The last option is to buy a laptop computer with it already installed, as companies are able to buy the software cheaper and this means that you aren't really paying for the operating system when you buy the PC.
