3 OS's to upgrade maybe

I have a computer with XP. A 5 year old laptop but the XP CD got lost and my regular computer with Vista Ultimate which was upgraded from XP which cost me a total of $400. I have a Removable HD which I was just going to buy the full version of windows 7 which would give me 4 OS's which I don't need so I'm not sure if I should buy the upgrade for 3 computer or just buy the full version because I'm sure not going to just upgrade my Vista which I can say "Now I have a $500 OS" So I'm just scratching my head wondering what to do.

If it were me, I'd buy the three pack, upgrade all my computers. It's better to be running on a uniform system anyways.

Of course if it were really me, I'd sell the laptop, and one or both of the computers, then I'd build myself a new system with a full version of Windows 7 Home Premium, or Professional (no need for ultimate), probably either the student discounted version, or a full OEM version.
