I'm in the UK. If I buy the upgrade from Amazon US, will it work in the UK?

Yes

No they won't! Oh well, it was worth a try. I can't believe that the upgrade is about 35 in the US, and it looks as if we won't get any upgrade option at all and the full pack will cost around 160!!

Of course we will get the upgrade option, what would make you think otherwise. It's just that we have to be a bit more patient.

But why do we?

Why do we need to wait at all? Surely we should not be last to get it, and should not have to pay more for the same product?

Does it really matter you have to wait until july 15 to order a product that won't be out until Oct 22 ?.

I thought there was to be no upgrade version for Europe. Does that not include the UK?

There are no upgrades for the E version (the one without IE) you can still get upgrades for the regular version.

Hi,

MS are not making Upgrade versions available in the (EU).

Some time in the future - they may find a safe way to do the upgrade with the E version - then they will sell upgrade versions. However, there are no plans for a "deal" if and when that happens.

You may be able to find the regular (non E ) version as imports - but there will be no pre order deal on those either.


The cheapest way to get 7 in the UK is to take the pre order deal for the FULL version.

This is 60% more expensive than the U.S. pre order for the upgrade version.

It will be 49 GBP ( $81 USD ) for Premium and 99 GBP ($163 USD ) for Pro.

While it is true , you would get the FULL version - many do not need or want the FULL version - in any case there is no advantage to that imo.

Therefore MS are forcing U.K. customers to pay much more than the U.S.
