 Office XP Professional vs. Office XP Small Business

What is the difference between Office XP Professional and
Office XP Small Business?  I'm in the process of
purchasing a new notebook computer, and I am given the
choice between the two.

Hi Karen,

Personally, I would not purchase an OEM installation. It sounds like you
are saving money but in the long run it could end up costing you money. An
OEM version (preinstalled software) is limited to installing on one
computer, the license is non-transferable, which means you can never
install it on any other computer, and OEM support leaves a lot to be
desired. Typically you will encounter the run-around, it's not our problem
it's Microsoft's, and of course Microsoft will tell you it's not their
problem it's theirs and in most cases the OEM is the responsible party.

Instead it would be wise to pay the extra and purchase a retail copy. Then
you will be allow to install it on both a laptop and desktop, the license
is transferable and Microsoft PSS is better than the manufacturer from
which you purchased the laptop. And I'm not saying this just because this
is a Microsoft newsgroup - my opinion is based on my personal experience
with all the major computer retailers and Microsoft.

Please post all follow-up questions to the newsgroup. Requests for
assistance by email can not be acknowledged.
