    U are welcome.

    Usually u upgrade at the point of sale.
    Cos most lappy are pre-installed with either Home of Pro version. & of cos priced differently.

    As for going down to SL/Funan to upgrade, very unlikely the shop is going to do it. THink of it, they can't use ur Home version. Why would they wan to give u a discount rite? I may be wrong, u can still try.
    U can also call IBM to check with them 1st, again chances are slim.

    Btw, a friend interest in the Singnet BB promo. What is the deal? How much per mth, speed of the BB, contact length & Spec of the lappy? Care to share? Thanks.

    Hi evq,

    , i think i will try with IBM first. If cannot, then maybe buy the XP Pro oem version from Funan/SLS.

    I signup for the Singnet BB promo at the recent Sitex (no need to pay the S$42 registration fees , 36 months contract). The IBM notebook promo is still on going but no ideal if you can still upgrade the notebook to a T43 series which i did at S$539. You can find the details at http://www.singnet.com.sg/promotions/index.asp

    Yeap. The main incovenience is you have to keep calling them to give you a new activation code everytime you have to reinstall your OS. Other then that there isnt a single difference with the full retail version.

    For microsoft OS, Xp home/pro.
    Diff for box/oem(shrink wrap packing) got difference.(enquire from shop/ms hotline)
    BOX can install to any system whenever u like,activation/verification is required.
    Eg.this yr, buy new PC. with Box XP. next yr upgrade hardware eg. mainboard, can reinstall back.

    OEM(shrink package) limited to one system. once install on the system with the activation. The license can only be use on the system that had been activated only.

    I got mine 2nd hand from HWZ.

    No problem with 2ndhand if you got the whole retail box and original cd with you even if the previous owner had registered it. The owner of the box is the original

    I was once tricked $100 for a 2nd hand OEM version. can't work. Called MS, told me to look for the seller. Can't get the seller.
