I ended up with enough semi-retired computers that I enrolled in the Microsoft Refurbisher program.
The obvious motivation is to be able to turn around an XP machine with Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 and to be able to sell them at market prices by getting the operating system for around $30 each.
Now that I'm on board, I see there's this RPK package at 3 price points from around $200 to $400 depending on what you choose. I'm not planning to launch into anything but small numbers of computers - so I ask the question. This isn't a main stream activity.
And, I see that the RPK requires a Windows Server operating system - which I don't have. I guess I could start with one of the 180-day installs. I have plenty of computers....
Anyway all that seems to be more of an investment than I had expected at this stage. So, is the RPK really necessary? I can read the contents but what I need to know is practical experience.
