Dell people think "It comes with a full version of XP". That puts it at a slight price advantage

WRONG

They only have 2-3 activations and are POS recovery disks, after 2-3 activations you need to crack your legal copy.
Yep, and they'd be better off still by not even using windows

Hi, Chris!

Can you explain the above?

I have a Dell.

True, the copy of XP was on a special
recovery disc, but as far as I know, it was
a full version that I have had upgraded many
times.
