    it guru's please.

    best place to purchase my own hard copy of win 7.

    ie with its own disk/licences etc, don't like this over the internet purchasing stuff.

    cheers

    Bob, you have a young daughter don't you? If so, you are entitled to purchase an educational copy (effectively on her behalf - applies to any one with a child of school age (4-18)) - and these licences are much cheaper. This is totally legit.

    Go to a website like Software4Students - (they will send a hard copy in the post, before someone points out the obvious in the OP) - but it is the licence number that is important, not the media itself.

    As an aside, I'd be looking at buying Win 8.1 over 7 now to be honest......

    Hope all is well

    I agree with EtR that this is probably your cheapest (legal) option.

    Stick with 7. Win 8 is truly awful!
