It doesn't, but mass licensing would allow them to get a wholesale price...

Basically, if they (Dell and other people who will license Windows for their computers) promise to use it on like nearly ever computer, MS can make it up in volume...

It usually retails for like $200 or something? Depends on the version though...

Essentially, you're [tallteen86] saying that is Windows was added to Dell with the same retail price, it'd cost around $974.--. If it just had Windows on it, and if it was just a Dell, $974 < good deal.
