Oem is enough for me
on 7 December 2010
Seems most of the reviews here are for windows 7 in general, not this specific product. I was a little worried when ordering this version of windows, this negative review stating u need an extra 2gb download to install and the tag of 'for system builders only' almost put me off. But I took the plunge and picked this up for my new rig and had no problems whatsoever.
Things u should know:
You can't use this oem version of windows to upgrade from a previous version. It is for completely new builds only.
As it's an oem version you dont have any recourse with microsoft if u have problems, u have to take up any issues with the company that installed windows on your rig, I.e. You
You still get all your updates as normal
This version of windows is good for 1 pc only.
So if you have a brand new pc with a clean hdd this oem version of windows will be fine for you, and pretty cheap to boot.
