Anyone have any ideas on the best place to buy Vista? I am going to load it onto a new iMac so my wife can use it for her work.

Your best bet would be to get an OEM copy of Home Premium (Home Basic just plain sucks).

Vista Home Premium - $109.99

Vista Ultimate - $169.99


Though if your wife has no specific need for Vista, you can get XP Home for pretty cheap.

XP Home - $89.99

XP Pro - $139.99

Thanks!

PC Connection wanted $250.00. $110 sounds a lot better to me.

Yea, paying full retail price is simply extortion.
