What Software comes on the Computers?

Most, if not all, of our laptops and desktop computers available on the website come without any software or operating system (blank hard drive) . Unless the item is specifically noted to have an operating system, you will have to purchase it as an upgrade at the time of purchase. Currently, the only OEM Operating system we can purchase is Microsoft Windows XP. Windows XP comes in 2 versions XP Home and XP Professional. Details of each are listed below Microsoft Windows XP Home (option) This option is Windows XP Home Service pack 2 fully loaded on your system along with any security patches available at time of processing. Additionally we load any custom drivers distrubuted by the computers manufacturer to ensure the proper operation of your Laptop or Desktop computer. Additionally we may also load OpenOffice.Org, an office productivity suite. (see below) Microsoft Windows XP Professional (option) This option is Windows XP Professional Service pack 2 fully loaded on your system along with any security patches available at time of processing. Additionally we load any custom drivers distrubuted by the computers manufacturer to ensure the proper operation of your Laptop or Desktop computer. Additionally we may also load OpenOffice.Org, an office productivity suite. (see below) OpenOffice.org is an open-source, community driven office suite software comparable to Microsoft's Office, and is only available on machines with the Windows XP option . OpenOffice.org is pre-loaded on most of our machines upon shipment. OpenOffice.Org includes a word processor, spreadsheet program, and a Power Point compatable program. All these applications run very similar to the Microsoft Office suite. Better yet the files are saved in the same file format as the Microsoft Office suite. Word files are saved as .doc, Excel files are saved as .XLS, PowerPoint as .ppt. This allows for seamless import and export of documents from OpenOffice suite to the Microsoft Office suite.
