    £325 at pcworld for us UK buyers, they can get lost... i aint paying that.


    but my question now, would be:

    what version will everyone be buying, the basic seems fine... as the other versions just have other things which i dont even use or need, excrypting drive and adding things like photo sharing and all that, i dont need these.

    as the difference is more than double in price, surely there must be alot more in the ultimate version compared to the basic, surely?

    how much are the upgrade versions?
    i think i will wait for ages before i get vista so they can fix some of the early bugs like i did with windows xp.

    I will be getting either the Home Basic or Business version depending on the free "Express Upgrade to Vista".
