I just found out how pretty the penny is, at the CNET program reviews:

  Street price: $895

They also give the system requirements:

  PC:  386, 4MB RAM, 2MB disk space, Windows 3.1
  Mac: 68030, 4MB RAM, 1MB disk space, System 6.0.7

And a review, which is pretty favorable.
If you're interested in buying the OED2 CD, but you don't have WWW
access, let me know and I'll tell you the two 800 numbers for the
Oxford University press.
