Customer Reviews of Windows Anytime Upgrade W7 Home Premium to W7 Ultimate
No adverse effects-quick & easy to install.
Easy to install, Better than the Home Premium
Good product bad company6/1/2012
After 4 years of using Macs I had to get a Win box for a project. I was going to VM one on my Mac however I discovered that my wife had saved all her audio books on the hard drive. Rather than deal with that I bought a laptop. I went with a native PC to save money, Well after antivirus, MS Office, and then 100 bucks to allow my laptop to encrypt or join a domain I think I might have come out behind a Mac purchase. Pleasantly pleased with Win 7, hate being nickle and dimed. Boo multiple version
