I presently have a desktop system (XP Pro) about 2 years old. I have purchased a Dell Inspiron B130 (XP Pro) laptop. Is there a way I can copy/transfer the whole Office 2003 program and files to the new computer? I am trying to find a way to avoid having to buy Office again...way too expensive. Can I backup and restore? I have no clue. Needless to say my desktop came already loaded with the program..I have no disks.

I buy Office all the time thru Ebay. Nice prices if you only need the standard edition. I prefer the Pro edition because it has Access.

Bid low and watch it closely in the last 10 minutes. Set a price in your mind and stick to it. I will usually go as high as $60 for standard edition. A few months ago i got one for $26 and it was the pro edition. Looks like i was the only one watching it closely although someone tried bidding $25 at the last minute. I bid $75.23 on it when it had 90 seconds to go and was the high bidder ar $26. I did'nt give him enough time to get a second bid in. I would not worry about not getting a few of your first bids. It just depends on how many are for sale at the time and how many people think they need it. I won't get into a 5 minute bidding war with someone. I'll bide my time and just keep bidding other ones until i get what i want.
