With the school year coming to a close, parents often start looking for a new PC to give to their children when they start college in the fall. The next step, after choosing your ideal computer, is to make sure that you are using the right edition of Windows 7. If you use your PC for everyday tasks and want the best entertainment experience, you will want Windows 7 Home Premium. If you work with it, you’ll want Windows 7 Professional, with all the features of Windows 7 Home Premium, only made more convenient. If the PC doesn’t come pre-installed with the version you desire, then use Windows Anytime Upgrade.
Netbooks often come with Windows 7 Starter, which is easy to upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium using Windows Anytime Upgrade. It will allow the user to personalize their PCs with Windows 7 themes, create a desktop background slideshow consisting of their own photos, switch between open programs with ease (using Taskbar previews), and enjoy remote media streaming.
Many retailer partners are taking advantage of this upgrade with a new offer that will start on April 4th, ending on July 3rd. People who buy a new PC will be able to add Windows Anytime Upgrade to their purchase at a special low price.
Windows 7 Starter to Windows 7 Home Premium: $49.99 (currently $79.99)
Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional: $79.99 (currently $89.99)
