New computers bought on ebay?

  hiphopsuperman 19:12 12 Jan 2007

I'm planning on buying an HP laptop on ebay and I want to know if it is eligible for the free Upgrade to vista. It is brand new, factory sealed in box, it is being sold by an individual (not an ebay store) and it does have the Vista capable sticker on it.

Can I get the free upgrade? Do I send a copy of my ebay receipt?

Thanks for the help!!!

This is a deal between manufacturers/dealers and Microsoft. I wouldn't bet on the free upgrade as you're infact buying second hand, as in you're buying it off someone else.

Unfortunatley, this probably won't work as (as Spencer says) you are buying a second hand product in the eyes of HP and Microsoft. If anything, you'd need the original receipt for the laptop (not eBay, but the original purchase receipt) to give it a try with HP.
