It sems as though we are not going to be treated to the same upgrade path as previous Windows allowed. A complete retail disc will be shipped. click here

I will not part with my cash no matter how many people tell me it is the best, just because it was a freebie.

ive never bought an OS only ever changed when buying a new comp

seems like a waste to me, and its quite a lot of money, id buy it for say £30 otherwise stick with vista

£150? Nearly buy a new PC for that. How long do you think I can carry on using XP? Getting on for seven years now.

I think they were saying it's £79.99. Bit of a confusing article.

Have I misread it/ If I wanted to swap out XP for 7 in this PC, it would set me back £149.99, wouldn't it?

Not that I would............

all those who forked out good money for windows ME, er I mean Vista will be chomping at the bit to buy the next WOW factor, 7.

The vast majority of sales will be just like Vista, you are forced to have it with a new machine unless you can get the drivers and upgrade it to Linux or XP.

I want a new laptop and was hoping that there would be an upgrade as I dont want Vista on it - will just have to wait a while longer now!
