Windows 7 7600 (x86 & x64)

Home Premium. I don't really see the gain in spending twice the price for Professional, I personally don't think you actually get twice the product. Plus I don't see a need for me to be connecting to a domain any time in the near future.

Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1

It was going to be Pro for me, but seeing how Pro is only going to be 20 bucks cheaper than Ultimate...I'm on the fence now.

Windows 7 Ultimate Vista Ultimate x64

Home Premium for me, I won't use all the extras in Ultimate, I want the discounted upgrade offer but it doesn't seem to be available in Australia.

Hi, I mistakenly ordered a new laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium and as a result - am unable to add it to the work network domain - I just screwed up. Is it possible to "upgrade the O/S" (pay to have it unlocked) and change it to "professional" or whatever is needed? Thanks in advance. John
