Windows XP Pro COA

  Bramblerose 12:54 26 Jan 2004

I have been looking to buy XP Pro and have come across this description....Windows XP Pro COA and am not 100% sure what I would be buying. I understand that COA means certificate of Authority but would it mean that that is ALL I would get or would I get the CD's and serial number as well??

They were also offering Windows XP Pro OEM versions but this was slightly more expensive.

The blurb didn't say much on the website - anyone any ideas?

Only had a quick look but it all seams to be above board and legal software. Yes, you would be getting the full CD and product key with any software you bought from them.

The prices don't seam to be any lower than other on-line stores though by the time you've added VAT and P/P. But the site does seam quite genuine. I always feel more confident when a site offers a TEL: No. and postal address as this one does. j.

I will continue to search for a good price but thanks for having a look.
