Need XP Professional

We have several computers with XP Home. We want to upgrade to XP Pro. but this older OS seems still to be very expensive.

Any ideas where we can get cheap upgrades or new install versions?

The differences between XP Home and Pro are not very marked - particularly if these are home computers. If they are business machines then maybe there might be some slight benefit.

They are used for business but we have a cheaper upgrade path to Vista business and XP Pro must be installed first. They are currently XP Home, that's why I need Pro. (legitimate license of course).

That's a new one on me, going from home to pro so you can upgrade to Vista, or did I misunderstand you?

And i personally would skip Vista and go to Win 7 is that's possible. To check if your computers will upgrade go here>> click here

You should be able to go from XP Home to Vista Business - although I would agree that Windows 7 would be preferable.

!st off i did use dban on the hard drive b4 installing this trial version & i may say it works very well.

The upgrade path I have described is correct. We are using Vista business generally and the license we can get will only allow an upgrade from XP Pro to Vista business or windows 7 pro. I am looking to buy XP Pro so I can upgrade Home to Pro and therefore give me a route to vista business. What I am looking for is a good price for XP pro and I am suprised it still seems to be around £100. Are there any UK sources for XP pro which are cheaper?

That site has a bad rating on WOT -

That's why I said "Up to you". The site has many spelling mistakes and I wouldn't buy from it, but the poster was asking for cheap XP pro so I pointed him\her towards it to make up their own mind.
