Our Dan's been running on a trial version and he reckons it's great. Much quicker than vista and uses less resources.

i'm hopefully getting a new laptop once off the honeymoon, it was tempting to get one now after seeing that but i will be holding out, afterall i think operating systems run better as a full install and not an upgrade from a current operating system.

No, I mean the log in and password details that I set up to access the remote servers. They're there alright, but as asterisks! :lol:

you can get full program loads cheaper than that

link removed so a more local business can sell them

I know a local business tried to get some that would have been a good price but the supplier had sold out.

I heard this local business finally got hold of some (although not at quite as good a price as hoped) and is now selling Windows 7 Home Premium for £94.99 :wink:
