    I want to put Vista on my iMac with Bootcamp. My question is is there anywhere I can get a copy of Vista premium cheap? I'm already getting the upgrade version so I'll do that double install trick dealie so yeah. I was thinkin Amazon but maybe there's somewhere better? I can get an upgrade version of premium for about $90 there.

    I was thinking of something similar. However, I don't think you can do it on line. Have to go there in person!

    If you are a student your university probably has it cheap. If not, then I don't know what to tell you.

    I have seen some good deals on Craigslist. I got a free copy a while back and sold it there.

    NewEgg.com and TigerDirect.com are both good places to get Vista for cheap. :D

    Or you could always set sail (har, har) and get Vista across the barren seas of the interwebs.

    I got a copy of OEM Vista Home Premium 32 for $79 from newegg a few weeks ago. It was on sell. Fast delivery as always.

    I'd also be wary of CDW, as their prices have gotten too high. Some are even over MSRP. :eek:
