I'm about to purchase a computer from a major manufacturer. It needs to have Win7 Ultimate, and I have a choice as to how that's done:
- Buy the computer with Win7 Ultimate pre-installed ($150).
- Buy the computer with Win7 Home Premium pre-installed ($0), then buy a Win7 Ultimate install disk for $10 on my university's site license and re-install the OS myself.
Can you see any disadvantages with #2? Warranty problems, install issues, etc.?
