Hi Hodgie99

Try looking on a site like www.dealtime.com or www.pricerunner.com.

You can input the product you want and it will give you a list of the best prices around :thumbsup:

My favorite is http://www.pricegrabber.com/ I've been using them for years now. I don't buy from anyone without some color in the 5th star of their 5 star rating system and have not been burned.

Read the descriptions carefully and beware of the exceptionally cheap deals!

When prefacing the request as you've done, when it comes to software. The only reply I can honestly give is "Caveat Emptor".

Probably cost: $78, unless you buy one of the Dell disks being sold (with embedded activation keys).
