Buy Windows 7 Now for £79.99
I ordered my copies of Windows 7 Home Premium Edition from Comet online for £44.99 each including Free Delivery.
Now the cheapest price appears to be buying it for £79.99 – that’s for the full retail version of Windows 7 Home Premium Edition. Don’t go to Amazon and pay over £100.
I installed the Windows 7 release candidate on my home media centre and I was amazed at first how quickly it installed, in about 15 minutes, and then how well it ran. I had to tweak the odd settings to make it sleep after recording TV programs etc, but otherwise it’s really good and I can’t recomment it enough.
It’s definitely worth upgrading to Windows 7 if you are running a Media Centre or if you have Vista and don’t like it!
I originally installed Windows 7 on a 1GHz PC with 512MB RAM. This was an old HP PC that is now in my observatory, it must have been about 8-10 years old, but Windows 7 installed in about 15 minutes and worked really well on it, I was amazed, there was also only a 64MB Graphics Card in a PCI slot in the PC.
I found that when looking at Windows 7 running on the PC it takes about 384MB of RAM to run, whereas XP does take a lot less – something like 128MB RAM, so as I had such little RAM (512MB) I did uninstall Windows 7 and go back to Windows XP. But I am still really happy with Windows 7 and looking forward to the release date.
