Only found the code on the topcashback site when I was browsing for the comet cashback. I suppose it may be worth putting it on here, cos its 5% off anything.

Edit: Have just submitted the voucher code in the voucher section now for everyone to see.

Ordered thanx OP. Heat added

Thanks for post OP. Looking at the comparison, it doesn't seem to me that for the normal user there is any benefit from the professional over the premium version to justify the extra £45?!?

It says £44.99 but when you click on the link it shows as £49.99 which is what it appears as in the basket. The same issue occurs with the Pro version as well. :thinking:

Good luck with that, £200 eventual release price and I can't see it being less than that beforehand as they know it's aimed at businesses.

Europe doesn't get an upgrade edition due to an issue with the EU over anti competitiveness, so the full version is being sold at a reduced price throughout Europe. So yes, it's the full version.

I have 5 computers (3 laptops and two desktops). If I want to install this on each computer, will I have to buy 5 copies?

last week when i encounter a problem with vista upgrade to sp2, i phoned the cs and they were unable to sort it out and im then transfered to complaint department coz i wanted to try my luck to get a cheap win7 this way

i clearly remember they said a full-license covers a desktop, a laptop and a netbook together at the same time, but they can be lying:p

I thought one licence covered one machine.What you can do is speak to someone like PC World (ewwwww did i actually say that,wash my mouth out!) business section regarding buying more licences.Will be much cheaper than buying more full versions.

I currently have Windows 7 RC 1 installed on my laptop. If I purchase this home edition will I have to reinstall my whole operating system or can the new home edition product key be applied and downgrade my ultimate edition to home.

It was in the press recently (http://www.osnews.com/story/21811/Resellers_Reveal_Windows_7_Family_Pack_Price) that MS would be releasing a family pack covering several machines in a single household. This
a) seems to imply that this offer is for a single machine
b) begs the question of whether its better to buy now at the discounted rate, or wait and see what European pricing for the family pack looks like.

They never make it easy!

Unfortunately you will need to do a fresh install.

And for those asking can I use it on more than 1 pc. Sorry its single license. The family pack aanounced by MS is for up to three but I don't believe this is being discounted to the level of the current single pack so may well work out cheaper to buy three copies now.

With XP you could install it on you main PC and a laptop AS LONG AS it was the retail version and both were never used at the same time.

I think you can install it on a laptop and desktop if both belong to you personally because presumably you wouldn't be using both at the same time, else you will need to buy 5 copies
#24
Thanks for the replies. If both computers were on at the same time, what would happen?

no, you wont be able to install it on two different machines as you are required to register ('activate') it and each unique key may only be registered to one computer, and of course it is illegal too.

The police don't need to turn up because the second activation will fail

This is still available at £44.99 if you PHONE the order through - they apply the £5 discount manually.

There seems to be a lot of misinformation floating around on what you can do with a Full Retail license. You are only ever licensed to use it on one machine at a time. You can install it on a PC and then MOVE the license to another PC but then the original PC will not be licensed and won’t be able to use Windows Update. The original installation will still be fully functional though apart from not being able to access Windows Update. Under the license terms you are supposed to remove it from the original machine.

I have moved my XP Retail license across about 6 PCs so in theory I could have all 6 PCs still running XP in an unlicensed way but in fact I only ever have one PC at a time so I’m within the terms of the license.

For those wondering if the family pack will be better value than multiple single licenses I suggest ordering now all the single licenses you need and before Windows 7 is released they will very likely announce the pricing for the family pack. So if it’s particularly good you can cancel the order(s) for single editions. There’s also the question of whether the family pack will contain full retail licenses like those on offer now.

Nice. :thumbsup:
I’ll remember to check it out before the orders are shipped in case they are more restrictive with Retail licenses which could negate the whole deal for me.

Play.com have increased price to £89.99 ALREADY!
#35
mumbojumbo
This is back to £44.99 online and the discount code works too!

It shows up as £49.99 when you click through but when you add it to the basket it shows as £44.99.
#36
Thanks, just cancelled my Dixons order and ordered at Comet for £42.74.

Unlike the rest of the world, everybody in Europe gets to install 7 E on more than one machine, providing it's not running on more than one machine at a time, and we don't have to pay extra for the privilege, unlike our non-European cousins.

Is nobody else concerned that the Home Premium version restricts the amount of RAM to 16GB?

Surely it won't be that long until 16GB becomes fairly run of the mill, making Home Premium useless for anyone who uses a high spec machine!

No, not at all. 98% of home users would never utilize 8GB of RAM let alone 16GB. [Motherboards that hold more than 16GB would be very expensive just now for home users anyway..]

I don't mean right now, I mean in 2 or 3 years' time. Microsoft will likely intend to have quite a long life cycle out of Windows 7 after the Vista debacle, so it could become an issue.

And besides, since when have PCs been built around the bare minimum spec required? You could browse the internet on a 1Ghz Pentium 3 machine, but they're always getting more powerful to allow people to do things quicker.
