here's my story:
I just bought an Acer netbook about two months ago. it came with XP and I'm not too happy with it. Not that XP is bad or anything, I just wanted something newer, like Vista.
Well, I always have to update things and see new things so it's about time I get a new OS on here and I want Seven. Some friends of mine have brought up the fact that most new computers come with Vista (previous to Seven coming out) and I should look into seeing if Windows can upgrade me to Vista for a discounted, if not free, price seeing as my computer is brand new.
Another friend mentioned to me that I can get an upgrade from XP to Seven for around $10 and when I researched that, I saw that it was an upgrade from Vista to Seven that was that much.
Now, I'm a student so I can get Windows 7 for about $30 which I'm willing to pay but I just wasn't sure if I missed something and there is a way to get an upgrade for being stuck with XP.
If anyone knows anything, please let me know, as I'm about to purchase it for the student price in a few hours.
