Windows 7: How do I become a 7 reseller?

How do I become a 7 reseller?

I custom build computers from time to time, and have to get retail copies of the OS the customer wants. (Egads, some still want Vista)

How do those companies bundle it with their $400 laptops if 7 alone is $200? etc.

What do you guys think about those "discount" product key websites floating around, claiming they are legit? I got my custom 7 installer that has all versions on it, but not License keys. I buy those at retail. It would be nice to get legal keys at a discount.

Hello.





Why don't you purchase OEM? There are even better deals from time to time.

$200? Noooo, I'm guessing HP, Dell, Acer, etc., pay around 10 bucks for there use. If they wouldn't buy Windows, they would be out of business. Its possible to be a reseller, but you wont make that much money on your systems for that reason alone. People would rather go buy a $299 dollar laptop from Walmart than to have a decent machine.
