I didn't know XP Home cost that much, it's much cheaper than that. At that price you should be able to get MCE or XP Pro. I guess it is quite expensive, last I check.

The words "Not For Retail" and/or "Student Media" is imprinted on the CD, however this a full version software and is 100% genuine.
