    Vista to windows 7 free upgrade?

    There were talks a while ago about if you bought a new pc within a certain time period you qualified for a free upgrade to windows 7.

    Does anyone know if this promotion is happening and if so how does it work and what dates between?

    I don't know about the thread, but I read in a computer magazine that a disc will be mailed to you from the company you buy a pc from, though you have to pay delivery charge I think. You just state that you want the upgrade. If you already have the computer then call the company.

    everything on dell now includes the free windows 7 upgrade, and yeah they'll just post you the disc when it's released.

    I think I read a thread on here that mentioned June 26th...?

    its nowt to do with the retailer in the first place its the manufacturer mate, check the pc manufacturer through this site to see if your model applies

    that thread was the biggest waste of time ive seen on this forum lol bless him for the effort tho!

    how can you build a sony vaio or a dell yourself.......

    like i said its the maufacturer that will be sending the disc out not the retailer.....once you bought your pc from your retailer you have to goto the relevant maufacturers site and register your pc/laptop with your recewipt and computer details.....


    what has joe bloggs building his own pc's got to do with anything exactly?

    i bought my laptop from tesco in april, will they give me a fre upgrade lol, unlikely but worth i shot

    This is wrong as a independant shop might not

    you did not bring up sony etc until later, and "Joe Bloggs PC" is a PC shop that makes its own PC a small independant PC shop, wow your slow and patronising when you dont have a clue.

    Just to clarify, if you buy a big branded PC Sony, Dell etc you will get the upgrade, but not all PCs are made by them, independant shops make there own PCs they dont make sonys or dells, they buy there own parts and make it themselfs, think about what your saying first mate, all I am trying to do is let people know its worth asking the shop if you are getting a PC from a shop that makes there own PC who might be a small company.


    OP might not be buying a big brand PC, if you can not comprehend that, there is no point keep talking about it.
