franpa, there is nothing really wrong with XP home. It works thats the main thing.

Pro just has a few additional features such as Network Administration and thats about it.

No point spending over $150 for something that you arent gunna use

I have to say, if you paid $1500 USD for this computer, you got a little ripped off. Sorry bud.

My guess is it would have been Australian dollars which, on current rates, works out to be about $1115 USD.
