    Apparently you can do a clean install with these upgrade products. Google for it if you need the details. This is a really excellent deal I would've taken up 2 weeks ago. I've since bought a new laptop with 7 pre-installed tho.

    Yea, i think its a great deal for the price. You need to do a clean install if you are upgrading from XP, but you can upgrade if you already have vista installed. The deal for ] office 2010 isnt too bad either!!!

    This pricing is for a download version of the software (or pay $14 for the dvd including postage) - download for Windows 7 is about 2Gb. If you don't have good download quotas - it is advisable to buy the dvd. For the non technical people, a "clean install" means that

    Great deal as they had it for $75 previously then up to about $119 IIRC and when it was put back to $50 I had my wife get a license for herself, too, as Vista (even with SP2) on her system was just sucking (it worked great on mine). I'll have a look at the Office deal now, too, as she could use a more up to date version than 2003.

    For those on a tight budget Open Office 3 is now a worthwhile alternative for opening/producing the Office format documents and is 'free '

    They previously offered Windows 7 Professional (full version) so I was able to pick up two copies then....one 32bit and one 64bit. It is a shame it is now an upgrade version. I do believe windows 7 can do a clean install (you need to install it twice - the first time without a licence key then the second to 'upgrade' that first install). Good value if you have a student/staff ID.

What do you think?
