Windows 7 Ultimate Upgrade, £99.99 From Dixons

Found 11th Dec 2010
This upgrade edition of the Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate operating system can be installed directly over Windows Vista, or as a clean install with either Windows Vista or XP. The clean install will require you to back up your files, and reinstall your applications.

Best price I could find for this item, price includes delivery.

Topcashback offers 3.03% cashback also.

Good price for anyone who isn't eligible for a student deal.

I seen it much cheaper on ebay but I think there are loads of copies going around so at least with Dixons you know it isn't going to expire in 120 days time and have a blocked product key.

Amazon sells for £98.25 incl. delivery

No thats the anytime upgrade which is different, that allows someone who has windows 7 home premium to upgrade to ultimate.

The version Dixons are selling is going for £143.99 on Amazon.

Running on my pirated windows 7 now... no pop ups and just done an update last night...

whilst it is a good price I am sure if you look harder you will find cheaper . .I bought a family edition for 3 pc's for £101 incl P&P

Would this allow an upgrade from Windows XP Home Edition to a clean installation of Win 7 Ultimate? Thanks

Yes it would, it's just the same as the full version if you already have XP.

I seen that for £129.99 somewhere but it was for Windows 7 home premium and I was looking for at least Professional version for Backup and Restore and Windows XP Mode.

If you're a student or have a son/daughter with a .ac.uk account you can get it much cheaper.

If you are looking for an upgrade, you're better off getting it from here for £38.95 (all you need is to name a school near you, or if you prefer, enrol for a class at your local college)

Edit: Sorry, my mistake.
Windows 7 Premium £38.95
Windows 7 Ultimate £57.99

Have a look at the new version of Linux Mint(10) first, a free download or about £2 on Ebay(pay the £2 it is less hassle, in my opinion). Alternatively use the links on Distrowatch to purchase the disk, it's a pound or so dearer and shipped from the States so takes a bit longer to arrive.
It's a "Live DVD" so you are able to test it without risk to Windows or your files.

as mentioned above - cheaper for those with school age kids from rm.com or software4students.co.uk both have it for @£58

Yes and a friend of mine did so too, a few months later it comes up as a pirate copy!

IMHO it's not worth the hassle, one piece of software that is worth paying for and going the genuine route is the operating system, an iffy copy is fine for a 'hack' PC but for your main PC that you use online Genuine is best.

The price that Software for students charge make it pointless not to go the genuine route IMHO.

Good point, basically was thinking exactly the same. It's £58 for the student copy which is fine if your a student but I really don't want to risk it as I'm not eligible, I'd much rather pay the extra £42 and have a copy I don't need to worry about.

My WindowsXP key is genuine but its one thats used on loads of different machines, Will I still be able to upgrade to Windows7 using this version of XP ? Will it affect any of the other XP machines that use this key still?

You can do a clean install of the Windows 7 Upgrade without having Windows XP installed on it.

Is it an OEM serial key you have for your Windows XP installation? Your installation shouldn't affect the other Windows XP installs, as your Winodws 7 serial key will be different.
