I'm looking for a cheap copy of X P home or Vista home to put on my MacBook Pro so I can play some PC games.

Does anyone have a source for one of these OSs?

I tried some googling, but the results were too massive to offer any real solutions.

BTW, kinda annoying that X P = DS_xP.gif without the spaces . . .

Newegg has Vista for $80. I don't know if they'll sell to a Canadian or if that's even what you would consider "cheap" but there it is.

If you have a student email address, you can buy Windows 7 for $30.

^I think that's just an upgrade from Vista. And you need a .edu address I think, which we don't have in Canuckastan.

Or you could just contact me on IRC...

I have him covered; ExPee is better than Vista for BootCamp anyway.

I still have my X P student version that has the cdkey on a readme file in it from years back that i've prolly put on a half dozen computers.

Yep, Razor came through like a champ. Thanks again.
