    Cheapest you've seen a Windows 7 upgrade

    As my efforts to put XP Pro on my new netbooks has failed (Putting XP Pro on Toshiba NB500) I need to look at purchasing Windows 7 and my budget isnt great. Does anyone know of where i can get the media and license for a decent price.

    Get ours from Civica or Pugh Computers. Win 7 pro without media is about £35

    was going to say, the cost of the key is around £35 (regardless of edition), its just the cost of the disk that makes things sky high!

    Have a look at Ramesys. They have the price listed as £30.24 but you will need to be a member of 1 of the listed Regional Broadband Consortium (RBC) or the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust (SSAT). Windows 7 Professional Upgrade 32/64 bit licence
    Qualifying RBC membership:

    London Grid for Learning (LGFL)
    E2BN
    West Midlands Net (WMNET)
    Northern Grid For Learning (NGFL)
    North West Grid for Learning (NWGFL)
    Southwest Grid for Learning (SWGFL)
    Or if you are a member of the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust (SSAT)
    The cost of a disk with them is £25 - Product Categories

    we paid £28.29 from misco - but it was part of a larger order. bulk buying really helps.

    something tells me she only need's the one for her laptop. are all these with VLK's because for a lot of VLK's are abought £30-£35 but u need to buy 5 licences otherwise i think licences are quite a lot more from what ive seen. it depends wether its a school laptop or a personal laptop.
