    you should go for a pc with xp on it.

    The A+ is vendour neutral my exam covered xp but yours could contain windows 2000 but I doubt very much it would cover 98.

    Have a look at your local recycling centre. They always have PCs knocking about.

    you could also set up virtual pc on your home pc and run xp on it, but if you want to use a pc for ripping to pieces and putting back together then get a cheap as chips pc along with pc technician streetsmarts by James Pyles (tripwire45) as the exercises in it will fully teach you what to do interms of installing hardware etc.

    For £25 you may struggle

    the A+ objective no longer look at 98 really so you want XP, I'd suggest trawling sites like freecycle before you go out and spend any money.

    I'd suggest getting an XP computer to help you study for A+. If you can, I'd try to find the parts to create your own computer. Building a computer from scratch will be greatly beneficial in your preparation for the A+ exams.

    should be ok, it might take 20 minutes to boot because the small amount of ram but it'll do the trick if your looking to take to pieces and rebulid.
