This may sound crazy that I even think of doing this, but I received several e-mails regarding the sale of Most Major software products CDs at much lower prices at: http://acdfghjbeklm.findhere.biz/?page=faq&pid=_584&cart=
The software is shipped from Europe. Has anybody heard any feedback on this company?
I was told before that OEM (by my computer repair co.) that the OEM can't be sold, only with major items like new mother board for major upgrades then it is much cheaper, or with a new computer.
I purchased a new HP Pavilion computer but did not realize that the software that came with it was only trails for 60 days. It was my understanding that the software on a new computer was part of the package deal, plus several trails of other types of product software. (It just listed the software on the box, MS Office 2003,MS XP academic versions, I didn't see anything about trail, except for MS works was a trail). Now I find that there is no MS Office 2003 or MS XP student/teacher, CDS as it was already loaded. Which really upset me, it was $1450. The main software that makes the computer work should be part of the package. Now I have to go pay several hundred additional for the software.
I feel as if I was riped off by HP. Yes I sent an email to HP also. No answer yet.
