usualy OEM has the bare minimum of packaging and instructions, apart from that should be no different

ebuyer had a good deal this weekend that was posted on HDUK, you could buy Vista with a free upgrade to Windows 7 for 50 quid, I think its 69 quid now, but I think it still is a good deal

As the other person said, the only main difference between OEM and Full retail is the packaging, but also reputable dealers MUST always sell you at least one piece of computer hardware

And technically once its installed you are not supposed to switch PC's :whistling:

This answer applies to Vista, I'd assume it's similar for 7 but I haven't actually checked.

An OEM copy doesn't have to be bought with hardware, the difference is that it's not eligible for support from Microsoft (direct support, you still get all the patches and add-ons) and that it can't be transferred between computers.
