    Hello everyone,

    I'd like to get either Parallels or a Bootcamp partition going on my new MBP. I do have a Win7 install on my self-build desktop, but obviously can't use that licence on two computers.

    What I am after is a legitimate licence Win7 ultimate licence that is fully legal, but at the cheapest price possible. Any ideas?

    Thanks for the reply, but I'm really after a new licence, and don't want to get stung by a less than straight seller.

    Amazon $167: Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64bit (Full) System Builder OEM DVD.
    newegg.com is currently $190.

    Other companies might have better prices for legitimate copies, but you would have to use a web search to find them.

    Do you have an old but active university email address? Any email address that ends with .edu can get student pricing. If not you, maybe a friend or relative?

    That's the annoying thing - because the hospital I work in is closely linked with a major London/world known university, I teach some of the medical students. Unfortunately, because I am just volunteering for that, I am not allowed a education email address (.ac.uk here in the UK). Not sure if I could persuade MS to make an exception...
