Anyone recommend the cheapest place to get windows 7 (not upgrade copy)?
I need a copy (not sure which version though,) to run on a Mac.

PCW do one for £168.03, (1 license)

Thanks.

I've still got my copy from the pre-sale, what was it £40?

still shrink wrapped, will be a collectable one day as the greatest Windows version ever and the last, before operating systems go server side.

Thanks Borat. I'll check out the ebay offers. I didn't realise I could get upgrade and do clean install. Will this allow me to also use the mac os and have the option of using Windows 7 for some work applications. A mate suggested using parrallels 5 and installing windows 7.




Thanks. I get lots of software from there for the kids, didn't see the full version. If I could use upgrade as Borat said might try there, or might just get full version from ebay.

XP is still way better than windows 7. I installed xp and accidently wiped 7 off the computer. Much prefer it now, don't think I need to go back to 7. The only feature I liked was the drag and snap thing but there's a program to implement that in xp, so i'm sorted. I don't think business' will move from xp until it offers something much more than vista and 7 have. All the little gimmicks 7 has won't appeal to a business. Maybe they should make a lite version of it and an OS that is compatible with all software. This is the reason I installed xp in the first place


To the OP just use a torrent site like the pirate bay. Search windows 7 ultimate sort by seeds and you'll have it in 4-5 hours

Yes

Don't be put off by an OEM. I had it for vista and was fine. It's excatly the same but you can only upgrade 3 parts I think on your PC, except the motherboard for it to still be functional. Another thing to note is that you can't transfer it to another PC and you don't get a fancy box, or microsoft help and support for more than 90 days not that you need any of that anyway. Depends if the limitations are restrictive to you or not. That was a quick google might be cheaper elsewhere

If you are a student then you can get it cheap through various student deals. Also, if you are a student, see if your uni has signed you up to msdnaa, them it will be free.

As for installation, just use bootcamp, very easy to use and will allow you to use both.

dont worry about paying and using parallels. the only point of this is if you want to run windows IN a 'window' on mac os. Better to use bootcamp as suggested. partition your hard drive and install windows separately, then you can dual boot. I have this on my macbook pro so I can play pc games ;)
