How to get Vista from America...

Hi, many people have complained that they can't find a way to get Vista from America (cheaper prices). Go to this webpage, and select the seller VGBOOKSFAST, they are selling it for $121, around £70, and they will ship to England.

You forgot the webpage mate. Anyway what about customs you'd still have to pay that.

£70 is below the leval you'd be asked to pay duty on it used to be £147 it may now be higher.

I live I Gibraltar and it's £147 here.

that sells to a purchaser within the European Union must charge VAT at the rate prevailing in the country to which the product is sent. Alternatively, the retailer may select any country in the Union as the state to which it will account for VAT, and may charge that country's rate on all orders sent into the Union.

You say that the supplier VGBOOKSFAST will ship to the UK, but I'm wondering where you got that information - buyers outside the U.S. cannot buy software via the marketplace.

I emailed them and asked. Email them to, they take orders outside Amazon

See FE excellent opinion if you have not read it already click here

VAT is charged into Europe on downloads by most US companies e.g. Nuance (was Scansoft) add or include UK vat on their products for download.

The point still is that even with vat the price via Windows Marketplace would still be less than we are paying here.
