    Wasn't Snow Leopard $29 for all Leopard users....

    Microsoft does only charge about $50 for OEM's.

    I plan on getting this through the action pack but a good piece of news. I think folks will be happy with the pickup of W7. Wonder what version it is though.

    I have XP in Bootcamp and would really like to upgrade to Windows 7. Will the upgrade in this offer be able to upgrade my XP? Or does the upgrade only work with Vista? And if I upgrade will I need to look for special drivers other than the ones I already have?

    no problem guys, its a nice deal
    MS said update from win xp is do-able but may be complicated, I think a new installation might be better.

    :eek:


    That's wonderful! I wonder if it's compatible with my Windows Vista OEM...









    However, I will be the first to say "WTF? They copied Apple's price!?" :p
