    Its fairly simple, retail you get the pretty box. Sometimes you get some extra stuff with retail like when buying a dvd burner, you might get a blank dvd or two. OEM means you only get the drive witht the screws, audio cable, and software to run it.

    Hope this helps

    Some times the warranty for the OEM's isn't as good as the retail drives :)
