Cheapest place to buy windows 7 full? - Page 4

post #31 of 51
Double install method works even with brand spanking new hdd. We talked about this last year and I thought we came to the conclusion that the word "upgrade" was a sales technique,it did not mean that a prior install was required.In every case so far with me every OS I bought and paid the student price for (and was called "upgrade") was sucessfully installed and activated on a new hdd.

You can get upgrade and use it to get a full edition. I'm just no so sure about reinstalling it if your hard drive dies...

I've heard you can use the upgrade for a full install from quite a few people.
Yep, I just did for a friend. He got the key and I did a full reformat in his PC and activated perfectly w/o complaining.

Holy crap, a thread asking for the cheapest way to get Windows 7 and from what I've read there has not been a single TOS infraction! Impressive OCN, impressive.

OT, cheapest will probably be a student version. But that wholesalesoftwareprovider site someone provided looks crazy. Adobe Master Collection CS5 for 100 bucks? /don't see how this is possible without legal issues

EDIT: Searching around, seems they're legitimate, I take back my previous statement. This is going to hurt my wallet >.>

I'd vote a student edition or, if you can't swing that, try to see if newegg or another online retailer has a sale going. When Win7 first came out some companies were rolling out three-licence packs of Vista for $89 a shot.

You might find a good deal on Home Premium if they're trying to attract sales and are willing to take a hit on the OS if chances are you'll buy other things too.

I even chatted with a sales rep prior to purchase and he said they would either replace or refund me if the key was bad.

I am very pleasantly surprised that their keys registered nicely with MS.

Purchased windows 7 ultimate for 19.95 and updated.

Took me two hours or so to receive the keys after purchase.
