    I'v been asking this little white box store for years , how much sans O/S ?

    Then I give him my XP Pro Corp . #, has worked fine for my little circle of friends. He builds it installs the O/S ,I give friend a cd everyones happy .

    He would n't do it with out the Serial tho he's no dummy . He charges $140.00
    cnd . for a Win XP Pro disk with system, I thought that was a rip off .
