Acer Direct Software
As you are buying a new laptop, you can save £100's on your software.
OEM software (Original Equipment Manufacturer) is only available when purchasing new hardware and is significantly less than retail boxed software. For example, you can save over £200 on Office 2007 Professional, and £10 on AntiVirus.
OEM software is identical to the full software except that it doesn't come packaged in a box. All laptops come with full restore disks that restore the laptop back to its factory settings.
