Beginning today, June 26, 2009 Microsoft?s newest operating system Windows 7 will officially be available for preorder. To support this launch, two editions, Home Premium and Professional, will be made available for 50% off or more. This offer will last through July 11, 2009 or while supplies last, whichever comes first. Windows 7 is a truly exciting new Microsoft launch with great new features including Jump Lists, Aero Shake, Snap, new Device Stage Management, as well as new levels of home group network interaction. Your customers will be able to interactively learn about these features and more at the Amazon.com Windows 7 Resource Center.
Now to be honest, I really don’t know much about what Windows 7 has to offer but I have heard good things from people who do know and who usually complain about Windows products. So I figure its got to be better if they aren’t knocking it. Now if you’re like my parents who just bought a new system (or two like they did) you may want to take advantage of this discounted price even if you don’t install it right away (many people wait until the first or second service pack is released). If you do place an order, I’d recommend Windows 7 Professional.
Upgrade to Windows 7 Professional
With Windows 7 Professional, fewer walls stand between you and your success. You can run many Windows XP productivity programs in Windows XP Mode and recover data easily with automatic backups to your home or business network. You can also connect to company networks effortlessly and more securely with Domain Join. With all the exciting entertainment features of Windows Home Premium, it’s a great choice for home and for business. All editions of Windows XP and Windows Vista qualify you to upgrade.
If you don’t have Windows XP or Windows Vista already installed, you probably need a new computer – one that doesn’t say Etch-a-Sketch on the side. In general, if your PC can run Windows Vista it can run Windows 7. To make sure, download and run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor to do a quick check. If you want certain features, such as HomeGroup or Windows Media Center, check to see if your PC has the hardware that’s needed.
4 thoughts on “Pre-order Windows 7”
Pre-ordered mine today.
Local store didn’t know what I was talking about so I did it online. Having it shipped to said store (free).
Would rather not have them ‘lose’ the pre-order if I did it in person.
Based on your past experiences, I think you made a wise decision but is shipping it to the local store a good idea?
It’s internal to that store (Source). So I have documentation to back me up if anything goes amiss. Email, screencap of confirmation and Visa.
Worked fine BTW.
Waiting on a lens and flash from Purolator and a trunk lock at the moment. Better than UPS since Purolator has a depot. UPS seems to have better tracking though.
