Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
Windows 7 is coming on October 22, 2009. Here's an easy way to get it fast and save a bundle: Pre-order a Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade for $49** or a Windows 7 Professional Upgrade for $99.** That's about half off the estimated retail prices. This offer is available through participating retailers. Pick one and pre-order. They'll tell you how to get your copy when Windows 7 is available.
The list of participating retailers will be announced tomorrow, June 26, 2009.
Be sure to read the fine print at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/buy/offers/pre-order.aspx. As you can see from that page, “The offer begins on June 26, 2009 and will continue while supplies last, or until July 11, 2009, whichever comes first.”
What does that mean? Well, it means don’t procrastinate on this offer. Jump on it!!!
Then sit back and smile. You scored. I love that line by the way. Cute.
what's the difference between the two versions Kevin?
And are RC considered in the Upgrade option? It would be seriously a hassle to format the computer to reinstall my Vista copy and then have it reformat it again for Win 7.
