  • WindowsXP SP1a or SP2??

    I am ordering my software right now and I can either get XP with Service Pack 1a or Service Pack 2. There is about $2 difference in the prices, 1a costs more.
    Is there a difference? Which is better for the CarPC?
    Thanks.
    Spent so far: $1,755

    SP2 is mostly security fixes. If your machine is ever going to be hooked up to a the internet, *definately* get SP2. If not, then it's not imperative. I'm not aware of any reason that you'd want 1a, unless you have some particular app that doesn't work with 2.

      just get the cheaper one. You'll want SP2 anyways. Its not a big deal since the Service Packs are free anyways.
