hey out there,

i'm looking at buying a Toshiba Qosmio F10-100 machine and it comes with windows media centre.

i'm trying to find out which edition (2004 or 2005) comes with it but does anyone know:

does it include xp pro? i'm using this for web work so i need iis installed so i need pro xp.

if it doesn't, can i buy and install the pro upgrade?

very confusing and complicated...

any views would be great,

Computers powered by Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 are complete Windows XP-based PCs just enhanced for the home entertainment.

ah - this is true, but which version of xp, home or pro?

Windows XP Media Centre is basically just an enhanced Windows XP Home Edition - it is neither Pro or Home.
