Yes, however, PC World are conveniently out of stock, which means having to visit a store and forking over the in-store price of £189.95.

Do you have nobody in primary or secondary education you could buy a copy for.

Software for students is an UPGRADE only not full version

Professional is £10 cheaper and the only difference I could see is that this comes with Bitlocker so not a great deal.

If buying for a student is not a problem, then buying a full version of xp and then the upgrade from them still saves a big chunk of change.

I got Windows 7 Ultimate full version for just £11.50 three months ago!

What a great deal that was, 97 pages of comments!

I was tempted to get this from ebay for £20, maybe ever so slightly dodgy but a saving of £148...

And which of them is anyone buying a retail copy of ultimate likely to use? Bitlocker maybe but most of them are for big companies who'll be using volume licensing with Windows 7 enterprise anyway.

If you are going to buy the dodgy one why not just pirate it yourself instead of paying someone else £20 for the privilege. :roll:

Pure laziness on my part, everything is out there for free, but involves my time and effort in downloading, I work in IT and for some things I'd rather other people go to the hassle of getting it for me in exchange for minimal funds....
