With the money you save you can buy a new printer to replace the one you have now that works just fine but is not Vista compatible......

Good price for Windows Vista Premium.

Anyone know if you can buy at these prices in the store?

Wow! I'd never thought I'd buy something like that from Toy's R Us.

Good retail price, could buy it oem for this and less.

Even with Service Pack 1 it's no better and thats on a 4GB dual core system. My advice go with XP sp3

Sold Out!

I hate vista

I almost bought it last night,then remembered all the driver hassles when i bought XP when it came out,even now xp dont like my scanner and printer,i dont think vista will like them at all.

Good price if you have Vista compatable items to work with it,that includes your broadband adapter.best check your pc system will work on Vista before upgrading. :thumbsup:

Obviously people who don't like Vista are following the BandWagon - give us some justified reasons why!!

OEM versions if anyone's interested:
overclockers.co.uk/pro…=20

Dragonzuiko:
Just go to your printer/scanner manufacturers site and see if there are Vista drivers there for it

Actually I quite like Vista

Oh really :lazy:

Oos..

I prefer Vista after having it for a few months on both my laptop and desktop. At first drivers were a problem but since i have Vista drivers for Canon scanner and Epson printer.
It is also alot more secure than XP ever was and easier to use. Great price for the Vista upgrade.

I wouldn't touch Vista with a barge pole at the moment not until service pack one anyway.

It has a lot of diver issues
Also transferring files is slow:
]Click Here to see why
The indexing service is turned on by default so your hard disk is always making a grinding sound (although it can be turned off)
Also a few! reasons here why not to upgrade:

It can only get better though as its pretty rubbish at the moment. Id stick with XP if you can for now.
To be honest Vista reminds me if Windows ME as in they both where rushed...

Obviously people who judge those who don't like vista are just stereotyping but
Sharing stuff on our home network is far less convenient
Software and hardware doesn't work.

I must admit that transferring files is very slow and i use NERO as well instead of the ****** Vista offering.

Sold out

Lots of equipment and software is still not compatable with Vista, so my up grade which came free with my pc sits in the draw until it is easier to get drivers etc. For example the free Quark Express with Computer Shopper this month guess what not vista compatable! Stick with XP for a bit longer is my advice.

Amazon has the oem version for £60.98 if somebody still wants Vista :thumbsup:

I don't like vista because it is slow and has that irritating pop up asking me for authorisation for every little thing. It is very irritating particularly if you've just installed a new firewall which is asking you questions in training mode but before the firewall can ask you a question vista asks you if it is ok for the firewall to ask you a question. Why the heck can't vista learn like the firewall? Also my vista laptop is much slower than my five year old xp desktop which for installing, uninstalling, copying, deleting, starting up and shutting down.

Doesn't this also apply to people who judge others that do like vista?

This appears to be an UPGRADE version, not the full one.

In other words you need a PC with a licenced copy of windoze already on it...

(The overclockers ones seem to be full versions)

I've had no problems at all, printer and scanner worked first time as has everything else i've tried.

How many would you like?

- Incompatibility with much third party software(admittedly, not Microsoft's fault, but certainly Microsofts problem)
- Driver issues, especially when sharing printers between PCs - this is a nightmare
- Countless bugs when working in a networked environment with non-Vista(IE XP PCs)
- Poor performance generally - games are slower on Vista, and it is something of a performance hog
- Preventing session 0 from running services as administrator - this was a real dropped bollock.
- The nightmare that is UAC, both from an "irritating the user" point of view, and from a developer perspective.

Need I go on?

I am still waiting for my vista upgrade from toys r us from 11 months ago.
Still haven't got my money back or a vista upgrade.
Toys r us are a 3rd party seller for a company in Germany.
If it all goes wrong i.e.. it doesn't turn up or goes faulty you will have a long wait for your money back.
Every time my credit card gets the money back , the company toys r us are 3rd party sellers for take the money back. There excuse is they will send me a cheque in euros that would cost me £18-20 to cash because its drawn on a German bank.
They can get away with this because they are giving you the money back and the credit card company can't do anything about it.
Thats my gripe over and done with.
Buyer be aware.

LOL jumping on the bandwagon? no, Vista is a good idea badly done and MS know it.

Yes it LOOKS nice and there are some great ideas but the bad's out weigh the good's

User accounts are not sorted.
Too system intensive.
Direct audio removed (so no proper surround sound).
DirectX 10, is as above badly done, few advantages and allot of performance issues.
Even with indexing off the OS will hammer the HD 99% of the day.
Old apps can cause BSOD just for installing!!
Won't trust you to be a real admin.
64bit version is 10 times worse
MS think they have the right to know every little change on your system!, swap mainboard on OEM and Licence no longer valid!! WTF!!

Try XP SP3, it's a dream when compared to Vista.

OH yeah this is now good Vista is.....EVEN MICROSOFT ARE OFFERING USERS A DOWNGRADE CD TO XP IF THEY HAVE BOUGHT VISTA!!!!

See ]here

I think they just rushed it out too soon....unfinished and un tested! its amazing they get away with selling it imagine if they could sells cars this way!

Can you actually post facts rather than unbased opinions - "64bit version is 10 times worse"?!

I actually really LIKE Vista x64...

BTW - You can get the full OEM copy of Home Premium off the internet for £60, which i'd still do instead.

You can switch off the admin warning window (go to control panel).

We have posted plenty for facts about Vista you really must be a sucker for punishment for running Vista 64 bit, I ran it for a month and got fed up with it.

The fact is there are millions of applications written for XP -32 bit and it is going to take a very long time for the programmers to update there application to support Vista 64.

Vista 64 was so bad I caught a virus on it and as no software had been written to remove it in the end I just installed XP back also for the fact it was slow and unreliable just like Windows ME.

If you want it buy it, if you don't, don't.
Why have debate, that not what this site is for?

And if you don't like Microsoft, go and get a free copy of Linux and see how you get on. :-D
Oh and here is a version that you can even install on your Playstation.

Vista for me is better than XP!

Yes it takes more hardware than XP but then you could say the same for 95 over XP, and the cost of hardware has gone down.

Its only downside is network speed, but this is improved in SP1 and you can improve it with firewall changes, however for most people is this really a daily activity?

Drivers on my machines are better than with XP, oh and Sata the bane of my life with XP is so much easier with Vista.

I dont find it laggy in use, also I find it doesnt get as bloaty as XP does over time.

Games - not noticed anything speed wise to cause me concern.

Software - only come accross a few apps that dont work, and normally a visit to the suppliers website fixed via updated version.

Finally the admin prompts are there to protect you - if you dont want them turn them off.

You'll find that you actually cant properly, for two reasons:

1) You get this REALLY annoying message, CONSTANTLY, telling you that your system isnt secure.
2) More importantly, this means that programs that really do need administrator access just dont work properly at all.

Great price, three words though, 'dont do it' ! Win' Vista is a great prog' in theory, but so much does not work or is not totaly compatable, i am looking for XP to replace my Vista home premium, :cry: (64 bit Vista so that could answer a lot of the problems)! :thinking::thinking:

Vista for me too. I have the Ultimate version running on a Dell XPS desktop and before I go any further I am not very technical so will try to describe things. I have no compatibility issues with hardware but sometimes come across software issues (not available for Vista etc). The way round this is to get an alternative version of software that works fine with Vista. I like the aesthetics. Video wallpaper (dreamscene???), colourful and translucent tasks bars (Aero???), the little gadgets to the right of my desktop like the clock, radio, notepad, and weather. In comparision to XP Vista appears to be alive.

Form before function...?

UAC off

petri.co.il/dis…htm

and if you right click the apps icon and choose run as admin it does always run as admin.

Let me assure you that software does NOT work properly with UAC turned off.
