    I am looking to buy a legit version of Windows XP Pro so I can stop using my old version of Home and ran across this site with XP Pro Full version for $59.95 as a download. Now I am assuming it comes with a file including the key but not sure... their stuff in general looks way to good to be true. They do say "You are also given a unique serial number and an instruction manual that describes in detail how to install the application."

    Bottom line: Has anyone bought from oem-shop.com and if so are they legit with original serials/keys??

    Wow.
    I wouldn't trust it.

    You know what might happen?

    You might be able to do the install. You are gonna be all happy.
    6 months later Microsoft black lists the key and you are SOL.

    Making the assumption that you get a key....
    it is a key that is meant to be distributed in a business. When Microsoft catches wind the key is not being used that way they black list it.

    Better to keep your eye on your local craigslist ads, and pick up a used copy.
