Cheapest place to pre-order Windows 7??? (For home)
I am looking to find the cheapest place to pre-order windows 7 for my laptop, as I have been looking around and I am trying to find the best deal!!. I think I would go for pro as it has the XP mode unless anybody thinks it would be better to get the home edition???

Argos has windows 7 home premium for £49.99 delivered, which seems pretty reasonable to me. Not sure about the best place to get a pro version.

Would once have said that "reasonable" and "PC World" don't belong in the same sentence! Not always true now, but that price is £20 more than Argos which is quite a difference (ie 40% more expensive!)

I pre-ordered my copy from play.com a couple of weeks ago for £49.99 but it has since gone up.

Mine was £44 from Currys of all places - though prices have gone up now

Just to resurrect this thread is there anywhere else still selling Windows 7 for under £65? Amazon seems to be the cheapest place for it just now.
I also assume if I have a laptop with the 32-bit version of Windows Vista installed I'll still be able to upgrade it to the 64-bit version of Windows 7. I realise it obviously requires a format/full re-install but I take it there's nothing stopping me from doing it?

Yes, you can use the upgrade licence to go from pretty much any version of Vista to any version of 7, including crossing the 32-bit/64-bit divide. As you rightly state, in your case you have to go the 'custom install' route rather than it being a true in-place upgrade.
A few places are selling it a few pence cheaper, but nothing substantially less than Amazon's price AFAIK.

I've pre-ordered 3 copies from play.
2 Home Premiums (laptop and media PC) and an Ultimate. Saves a bucket load by doing it this way.
