|Windows 7 Goes Pre-Order In The UK|
Windows 7 Goes Pre-Order In The UK [news.bbc.co.uk]
|The latest version of Microsoft's flagship operating system, Windows 7, is available for pre-order in the UK. |
Amazon said that sales of Windows 7 in the first eight hours it was available outstripped those of Windows Vista's entire 17 week pre-order period.
The home version of the operating system costs around £50, while the professional version costs around £100.
The limited number of pre-ordered copies will be shipped on 22 October, the same day it goes on sale in stores.
Not that happy with the fact as a Ultimate owner (3 times over) there is no special pricing for that but £49 for the home edition is a pretty spectacular price...
Do you think there are actually limited numbers for this or it's just a marketing ploy?
Oh, it's a marketing ploy, for sure. However, I have to agree, it's a good idea to do it this way.
It looks like the pre-order special is no longer available at Amazon.co.uk.

I had it in my shopping cart yesterday, and this morning I received the message '...no longer available...' when I tried to checkout...
note to self 'stop procrastinating' lol

Just went to Amazon UK, offer for Win7 Home is now £75?
Funny to see in the "What Do Customers Ultimately Buy After Viewing This Item?" underneath, 34% of people buying Vista. Makes me wonder about the accuracy of that stat.
Yes, they are showing again, but the prices have gone up considerably...
Wow, so it wasn't a gimmick! Glad I bought enough for all my home PC's!
