Microsoft Windows XP Pro SP3 OEM Version Product Details

The Most Reliable Operating System!
By building on the proven Windows® 2000 operating system, Windows® XP Professional delivers a reliable foundation you can count on to keep your computer up and running when you need it most. Not only is Windows® XP more reliable, it also helps you more easily recover from system problems. Windows® XP Professional delivers the new standard in reliability and performance. This operating system is designed for businesses of all sizes and for users who demand the most from their computing experience.**

Benefits

Designed for reliability, security and privacy, high performance, and ease of use, the Windows® XP operating system provides a host of benefits for business and home users. A clean and simple desktop, rock-solid reliability, and easy-to-use features that take advantage of the digital age all contribute to the value of Windows® XP.

Enhancements in real-time voice, video, and data communications will allow the PC to become a center of communications and creativity beyond just e-mail and instant messaging. Windows® XP will also allow the user to connect back to the desktop from any location, and support for new wireless networks will be built in. Windows® XP will unify the user's support experience by enabling the user to provide temporary and secure control of their PC over the Internet to whomever can best help them.

Windows® XP takes an end-to-end approach to how people transfer videos and pictures onto their computer, how they use them on their PC and other devices, and how they share them, whether in person or through e-mail, over the Web, or through removable media like DVDs and CDs. It extends this experience through applications that help users buy music and videos, mobile devices, services for saving your music on the Internet, and more. Windows® XP will make it easier for households to share a single PC and share pictures, music, files, printers, and other resources.

Note: This version of Microsoft Windows XP cannot be upgraded from earlier versions of Windows. If your operating system is Windows 2000/ME/98 you must backup your data before installation. This OEM version will only allow a clean Install, and your existing data will be deleted.

  • Remote Desktop
    Remote Desktop allows you to create a virtual session and use your desktop computer from another computer running Windows® 95 or later, giving you access to all of your data and applications even when you're not in your office.
  • New Task-based Visual Design
    Get to your most commonly used tasks quickly, thanks to a cleaner design and new visual cues.
  • Wireless 802.1x Networking Support
    Wireless 802.1x Networking Support provides support for secured access, as well as performance improvements for wireless networks.

    Encrypting File System provides a high level of protection from hackers and data theft by transparently encrypting files with a randomly generated key.

    Save battery power when you're working on the road. With Windows® XP your laptop can enter Standby or Hibernate faster, and it can start working again faster after resuming from Standby or Hibernation.
  • Help and Support Center with Remote Assistance
    In addition to a comprehensive set of documentation, Help and Support Center in Windows® XP includes Remote Assistance, which allows you to have a friend or IT professional who is also running Windows® XP remotely control your computer to demonstrate a process or help solve a problem.

So your software can run more efficiently and you can multitask more effectively than ever before.

THIS PRODUCT SHIPS IN OEM PACKAGING - GO GREEN AND SAVE GREEN
Manufacturers sometimes offer discounts when large quantities of products are purchased without fancy, colorful, retail packaging. We take advantage of these opportunities to bring you the same quality, retail product at a lower price. Retail packaging is designed to look good on a store shelf and attract your attention. It frequently includes more paper, plastic and cardboard than needed. OEM packaging is not as visually attractive but is far more economical and because OEM packaging uses less paper, plastic, ink and cardboard it creates less waste and is better for the environment. Although OEM packaged product ships in a plain white or brown box you can be assured it is the same quality product as the retail packaged version. Buying OEM packaged products saves you money and helps save the planet…GO GREEN AND SAVE GREEN. Included accessories, software, documentation, and manufacturer warranties on OEM products may vary from retail versions. Please review our detailed specifications and photo gallery for included accessories and see below for warranty information.
