It's official, I have successfully upgraded one of my PC's to windows 7. It happens to be my wifes laptop that I used as the first guinea pig. This was very time consuming but no problems. It took almost 7 hours to complete. The download took the most time. On the positive side I did get the upgrade for next to nothing. I paid $29.99 for my upgrade....top that. The same place you where you get the Ultimate Office deal for $59.99 is where you get the 7 upgrade. The only catch is you have to be a student or someone with a qualifying email address. One more upgrade to go which is my desktop but I'm waiting on parts for my desktop since my mobo crashed and burned. That's another story. A new case, mobo/CPU combo, CPU fan, vid card and then switch out my good parts and put them in the new case. Then the OS upgrade.
