You can look around but Windows generally cost the same, there is no "discount version".

If you find it much cheaper, either it is on sale from one of the major retailers, or it is not legit.


does it matter if its oem?


OEM means it doesn't come in a pretty box.

With Windows 8, not really. The main difference is who you can get support from. With OEM, it is whoever installs it. In this case, you.
With Retail, you can call Microsoft.

Yeah but doesn't the license agreement for Windows 8.1 have a special provision in it for system builders that lifts the previous restrictions?

Not sure. I'd have to look into that.
