Okay, this thread can go into 'suspend' at least for a bit. I also tried to unplug/replug the router, and (shock), reboot the PC, and it's much better, more like 1-4 seconds. Perhaps there's a way to...

Ever since I reinstalled Windows 7 Pro on my desktop, new websites (or websites I've left alone for a 'while') are slow to visit on my UK broadband connection.

The 'link' was basically people/companies going through Amazon's shop (uk in my case). Thus others may have less favourable experiences if you're unlucky. One would click the new button (go 2nd hand...

Okay, a conclusion to all this. Windows 7 64 bit arrived, and performed exactly as wanted (SSDs are wonderful too, at least as a boot drive!). Thankfully, aiming for an apparently precarious price of...

Okay, I've bit the bullet and purchased a Full Retail version of Win 7 Pro new for 100. That's 60 below the default Amazon price, and maybe around 100 below RRP or some more expensive versions....

Like LiquidSnak, it doesn't for me either. Maybe it's because I'm in the UK and the site adjusts itself accordingly - I dunno.

I'm tempted to get the 70 ($120) one just below - does that say...

Okay so let's say I need to upgrade the motherboard in the future, or the hard drive / SSD breaks, can I make the change/upgrade if need be? I thought OEM meant a lesser warranty, minimal packaging...

Okay, but the seller has a very good rating (many sales too), and 80 is not *too* low compared to the 100 offers.

Am I safe with a 100 offer? There are loads (big, semi-famous names too) who...

I'm installing fresh. The item is filed under the "full version" at Amazon.co.uk with no mention of the word 'upgrade'. Do you think the sellers are making a mistake or something?

Thanks.

It will be a fresh install (on a 40 GB SSD drive). Do you think I will be 'safe' buying one which costs about 80 then? It is for a single computer, and should be Win 7 Professional. If...
