Windows 7 Version

Hi, am planning to purchase Windows 7 for my Macbook Pro to install through bootcamp. As far as I know, it is better to purchase a retail version rather than an OEM version as it allows you to install on another Mac if I were to get one as long as I uninstall it from my current MBP, correct?

Also, can anyone confirm this is a retail version - I've read reviews and am pretty sure it is, but just want to certify 100% from the pros.

That appears to be the retail version.

Hi,
The link is not working in my system, but if you like to install the Win 7 then I can give you some sources to install it.
