It is all about Profit $$$$$$$$$
Somebody is always willing to pay whatever and that is what they hope for.

The guy with 479.99 is trying to get more business so he cuts everyone else.

All about the Money. Product is the same.

You are comparing windows 2012 server and windows 2008 R2 which is what is being refelected in the link.
The new licensing model for Windows 2012 deals with having two versions. Standard and datacenter.  the Windows 2012 std functionaly has the same level of functionality as exists in the Enterprise version of prior OSs.  Having a 2012 STD license enables your use of either 2008 STD or ENT.

Perhaps our interpretations differ.  If it were true, Dell couldn't run Windows on their own systems (I don't think Dell run's HPs internally).  At the end of the day, this is why there are legal firms that deal with intellectual property.
I think HP and Dell have own agreements with MS :).
I'm sure - but my point is, if you couldn't build for yourself, there would be a LOT of computer companies - small and large - that couldn't use their own "brand" of system.
