Let the Windows 7 pre-order madness begin!

I am pleased to inform those of you in the UK, that you can now pre-order the brand new Windows 7, due for release in October, for as little as £49 for Home Premium, and £99 for the Professional edition - that's quite the saving. You've got to hurry however, as stocks are limited and it's pretty much a guarantee that these are going to sell out rather quickly (going to be ordering it myself when I get my paycheck in August).

The following are the full details;

At midnight on Wednesday 15 July, Microsoft’s new operating system, Windows 7, goes on pre-sale to people in the UK at a special introductory price, but you’ll have to be quick as prices are low, stocks are limited and it is first come first served!

To say thanks to its loyal customers and enthusiasts, especially those who have taken part in the Beta and Release Candidate (RC) programmes, Microsoft will be offering pre-order copies of Windows 7 at one-off promotional prices* of £49.99 for Home Premium and £99.99 for Professional. This is a great opportunity for your readers to get their hands on the best Windows operating system of all time and save plenty of money in the process.

The Windows 7 Beta and RC versions have been very well received by consumers and media alike, and both have been downloaded by millions of people worldwide. To pre-order a discounted copy of the final version of Windows 7 you need to contact our selected retail partners listed below or go to

Finally, a quick reminder for our UK customers: if you are replacing an older version of Windows with Windows 7 once it arrives on 22 October, a clean install of the operating system and the installation of an internet browser will be required. For more information on how to do this go to and for general information on other aspects of Windows 7, please visit
