Windows Vista Ultimate is the most comprehensive edition of Windows Vista. It is the first operating system that combines all of the advanced infrastructure features of a business-focused operating system, all of the management and efficiency features of a mobility-focused operating system, and all of the digital entertainment features of a consumer-focused operating system. For the person who wants one operating system that is great for working from home, working on the road, and for entertainment, Windows Vista Ultimate is the operating system that lets you have it all.

Work from home
Windows Vista Ultimate includes all of the features that make it easy to remotely connect to business networks. So when you're working from home, you'll have advanced networking capabilities, such as the ability to join a domain, support for Group Policy, and features such as Remote Desktop. Windows Vista Ultimate also includes Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption that provides new levels of protection against theft for your important business data whether you are at home, on the road, or in the office.

The latest in entertainment
Windows Vista Ultimate delivers all of the entertainment features available in Windows Vista Home Premium. It includes everything you need to enjoy the latest in digital photography, music, movies, analogue TV, or even HDTV. Windows Vista Ultimate has great tools such as Windows Photo Gallery and Windows Movie Maker to ensure that you have everything you need to collect, manage, and edit your digital content. It also includes Windows Media Center for turning your PC into an all-in-one home entertainment center.

No compromises
Windows Vista Ultimate delivers all of the features available to both business users and home users. It is the ideal solution for a small-business owner who wants a single PC that he or she can use at the office, on the road, and at home. It is also the ideal solution for someone who wants a home PC that will be used primarily for entertainment purposes but that can also be used for business purposes such as connecting to a corporate network.

No - top 2 are OEM not retail.

No because the Savapoint version is NOT the 'full' version, its OEM, as is the Ebuyer version.

Beat me to it :lol:

Anyway, cold for a misleading title.....

i like the minimum specs on vista - can you imagine using it on such a system?!?

I've got it on my system and it's a hateful thing...

I have actually tried it on a 1ghz p3 laptop with 512mb and it wasn't fun. Took about 10 times as long to do ANYTHING compared to XP Pro. Wasn't up to speed on 2Ghz 1mb system I tested it on either. XP kicks it in the nads and always will. Just a shame designers are switching over to DX10 forcing gamers etc to 'upgrade' to this ****.

>RRP: £354.99

Can you imagine ANYONE willing to pay that for a version of Windows.

It would have to come with a free PC to justify that cost.


For anyone considering upgrading to Vista - DONT.

If it comes on a new PC then you have little option, but if you have a working Windows XP system STAY on it, dont be tempted to go to Vista.

I like vista, it just a shame people like bashing Microsoft even more.

There's nothing wrong with Vista (i run it), but i don't think its worth upgrading to for most people.

Having upgraded my Macbook to Leopard, I'm looking to install a windows OS for the key reason of being able to sync my new WM6 phone that I can't seem to do in Mac OS - I know I should've gone for the iPhone, but toooooo expensive!! I wont be using it as my main operating system and it'll be run through bootcamp with 2GB of RAM on my macbook. Could anyone let me know if it's advisable to go for Vista or stick with the safe (and cheaper?) XP? Will Vista ever be sorted and have any mac users done it?

Have a read of this over at Toms Hardware : ]Click.

And @ Dave2, i'm not a microsoft basher, i've used just about every one of their OS's since dos 4.01. The problem with Vista is that it steals too many resources for itself, a good OS is almost transparent in that respect, which is possibly one of the reasons people like Linux. You want most of your processing power/resources to run your apps, not your OS.

Google OS should be interesting, public beta coming 2008

Is this going to be Linux based ?

If one big company issued a "standard" linux it would have some chance of success (although making any dent in Windows dominanace will be difficult).

It is the myriad of Linux versions that stops widespread acceptance.

Voted cold for the deal itself, but the ebuyer price is a good one

I have had vista for a year now and it is just awful. The restrictions it places on your own system is unbelievable. E.G.

1. have to double confirm any deletions etc.
2. Startup stops programs it doesnt approve of (e.g. utorrent, tversity, peerguardian). You have to allow them each time manually.
3. Huge resourse drain
4. Games crash a lot with Nvidia gfx cards (NVLDDMKM.SYS problem that nvidia/MS have been trying to fix for over a year now!).

And yes, my account is an admin account before anyone squeals. really wish I had XP back as i want to play COD4 without it crashing every 10 minutes.

Many thanks Shengis - looks like it'll be XP for this Apple user (who requires only basic windows functionality!).

Yep - and 'they' were spot on unless you enjoy being an MS beta tester. First two years of all MS O/S are just hellish.
