I think this is only in UK.
USA and Canada pre order promo was $49.05 for home premium upgrade media.

Seeing as the OP posted it cost him 45 i think that makes it pretty clear where its coming from.

OK, what is the difference between the "full" version and an "upgrade" version?

I thought both contain the complete OS, but the "full" version does not require a previous version of XP or Vista in order to install.

I don't understand the hostility. I did not intend to offend anyone.

But anyway, have fun with your full version. I'm sure you will enjoy it a lot.

In the U.S. all pre-orders at the special half-price are upgrade versions and not full version. This was the information from Microsoft's web site regarding pre-orders.
