    Cheap Windows 7?

    Anyone know of any cheap deals for Windows 7 software (Upgrading from XP)?

    The cheapest I've found is £66.73 at PC World/Currys for Windows 7 Home Premium.

    Thanks in advance!

    Don't think you can upgrade, is it not just for vista? So you would need full version.

    You can upgrade from XP, but you need to back up your files etc, as it would be similar to a clean install (using the 'Custom' option apparently!)

    Fair enough, that's best price i think, other then that, try ebay. Could try getting an upgrade disc that they sent out. Type in for your comp make.

    Yeah I saw those, but wasn't sure how legal they would be, or how genuine (ie I don't want to wait until a Windows update comes out and find that the key is invalid/created by a keygen which I could get off of a torrent site!)
