Ok, so I think I've seen this before, but I'm asking to make sure. Isn't there a way to trade in the os on a computer that you've bought? I would like to know because I got my laptop like 2004 (which is a long time ago). And I thought I read something that said you could get a copy of w7 if you got vista, or something like that.
what do you mean by "some OEM sold Vista machines"?
There is (was?) a promotion where if you bought a qualifying laptop from an OEM, you were entitled to a free upgrade to W7. Had to be purchased between certain dates and from certain OEMs. (was recent too, so you are not covered)
As Duckie stated, there will be upgrades available which is most likely your cheapest option.
