On which Win7 PROFESSIONAL 64 Bit version to get??? The OEM versions are cheaper, and I noticed a few have SP1 (service pack 1) and other versions do not. I am not a system builder, just someone who wants to go from 3.3 DDR2 RAM in WIN 32BIT XP HOME ED, to WINDOWS 7 64 BIT version.
Will spending more money on the FULL Non - OEM version allow me to do anything different than just getting the OEM? FREE MICROSOFT SUPPORT?? I think Not.
In going to COSTCO, they only have the Upgrade versions for $190.00.
In going to FRY'S Electronics, they have something like this >
"Windows 7pro 64 bit (FULL) System Builder OEM". For $129.99.
I thought there is the FULL version, and then you have the OEM version, with little or no support. I have been using Windows XP Home OEM from Fry's.
