I have no idea.
and from the sound of it.
Neither does the tech girl that i;'m talking to from microsoft sales right now..lol
That's just sad..

whats the deal with the upgrade?
IF I have to reformat will i have to install xp again, then install the upgrade again? lol
Or will I just be able to directly install the win 7 upgrade?

The full version is like 200 bucks and the upgrade like 119 from what i see.
I'll just upgrade if that's the case.

I'm just going to look for a good deal on the full version.
95 bucks I see.
that seems to good to be true..
