Its a packard bell. My understanding from the 90's is they are a norway based company (?). The distrbution centre is not in the uk and this make it easier to come up with silly costs for shipping and payment options.

I looked yesterday, I can buy home premium for £45 quid. Is a joke

It's sometimes hard to tell where things are going to be sent from. I ordered the Snow Leopard upgrade for Mac OS X and it came from Germany, even though I ordered it from the UK Apple website.

Who's going to upgrade then?

Upgrading is by all accounts easier from Vista than from XP.

I wont touch it.

Its been three weeks since I installed 7 and I have had zero problems.

Very impressed with the performance even after filling up on software and demanding tasks.

Most impressed

A much better operating system - no faults, so far but the omission of an email client is a mistake.

To hell with the Euro Commission for forcing Microsoft to take the decision to remove it.  I'm now using Mozilla Thunderbirds and it's rubbish in comparison with Outlook Express.

What are others using?

I'm in the process of installing Windows 7 now. First I have to image the disk, then do a clean install, then move the applications and settings back. I should be finished tomorrow.

You might be suprised at how quick it installs.

The installation is only about 20% of it though. Lots of prep work first, just in case things go tits up.  8)

Got Windows 7 onto the Computer ok, first impressions are good. Installation is nice and easy and it recognised all my hardware, no bother. Had a bit of a problem with disk space when trying to copy over all my XP programs (the transfer utility needed 2x the space), so will buy a bigger hard disk and then install Windows again to allow this to work properly. I can then use my original XP disk as a backup drive.

Upgraged to windows 7with little problem except that my touchpad would not allow me to scrool up and down pages using it a quick visit to the manufactures website and a new driver download sorted that out.However has anyone else noticed a dramatic drop in internet speeds when using firefox in windows7 but not with IE.
