Vista home basic will not have the upgrade to 7. That said this looks a great deal for someone after a low-end laptop

I think a few websites are advertising W7 upgrades on a Vista Basic laptops, even though they shouldn't. Worth trying to get an upgrade disk, they can only say no. I know someone who bought a second hand PC off fleabay, went through the W7 upgrade process at Acer and got an upgrade disc for £12.

This is a fab laptop at a seriously amazing price (you'd pay a lot more for one second hand on eBay). Assuming it's widely available (may not be) and was being pushed by the pros who operate on here it would be several hundred degrees by now. Bargain!

BTW be aware the photo used suggests it runs Vista Premium (Aero) but it actually has Vista Home Basic.

Bargain

Tried three stores last night, but no luck in any of them. :-(

No probs, as I thought it best to post them in as a number of members were messaging about using Windows XP instead on this laptop.
