    I just bought a downloadable Windows 7 Home Premium (with free upgrade to Win7 Professional) for $59.99. :thumb:

    Simply download the 3gb ISO and burn it to DVD or USB.

    N.B. Don't buy Win7 Professional. Buy the Win7 Home Premium & the Point-of-Sale automatically alerts you that your order has been upgraded to Win7 professional - free.

    Someone who's decided Windows 8 is not for them! :D

    My PC is not Win8 compliant.

    Why? Windows 8 has the same requirements as Windows 7. It shouldn't be an issue.

    I'm not looking to upgrade but it may suit others needs. I have no interest in the new Metro user interface.

    Really? I was mislead? Never mind. I've not had intention for Win8 anyway. But $60 was irrisistible. And some more RAM at long last. And Win7 is supposedly good until 2020. That's about $9.00 pa. And besides, I don't think this old PC will last that long. So whatever I buy the sales person will ensure I get Win8 etc if he wants the deal.

    Not really. Win8 won't install on old processor computers. My test computer for example. The beta versions installed but not the final release. I'm not sure how far back is an "old processor".

    They seem OK. They only sell MS Windows 7 & MS office 2010. They have online chat sales & install assistance online 24/7.

    I am having a difficult time burning my DVD. Install stalls, cannot find DVD driver. Seems a common disease when I googled the problem. Reburning with another burner now.

    I think their number comes back as a VoIP number (bandwidth.com) and their whois info is restricted. Plus I thought most MS products came with a cd. So I'm wondering if there is something fishy going on with the site. Do they offer a cd?

    Thing is that a lot of these sites sell MSDN keys, which is illegal but of course you will not face a problem activating those keys. Not sure if that's the case here though.
