Good deal from Software for Students.
The checks aren't very thorough when they check your details, they just ask you to name a college and that's it, not like Adobe products who ask you to send them photocopies of student ids and other documents. I signed up for an evening class, and thought that would do it for me. all they asked me to do was name my college, and then I got an email the next day saying it had been sent. So take your pick i reckon! I can't say this is a dead cert, but I really don't think it's being checked.
This deal has free P&P.
Windows 7 Professional edition: £39.95
Windows 7 Ultimate edition: £57.99
It's been pointed out that I should mention that you need to already have a copy of Windows on your PC before you buy this. There is a bit of software on the Microsoft website you can download called the "Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor". You can find it here:http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/en-us/default.aspx
It lets you know if your version of Windows can be upgraded using this software.
Okay NOW it's been pointed out that you DON'T need a version of windows on your PC before you buy this! Roar, you just need to install it WITHOUT putting your registration code in. Once it's installed put your code in, and it works fine.
I'm not sure how the thanking system works on here, but thank you to the people who replied.
It comes as a disk, the code is on the sticker on the disk's packaging.
The professional edition comes with the Windows XP simulator - the home edition doesn't. The XP simulator is useful if the software you use isn't windows 7 compatible for some reason.
Windows 7 is much faster in my opinion, and although the new tricks it comes with take time to get used to, they enevitably become useful once you know them.
the difference between 64 bit and 32 bit is a matter for ability to access ram memory, so 64 bit is faster than 32. The reason they still sell both versions is that older pcs can't handle 64 bit. I think that's correct!
