I'd place an order- but I'm kinda' broke right now. :(

Oh, and as a Staples associate I can assure you this is legit. They are available for purchase right now. :D

No problem. ;)

Be patient. We'll (Staples) be selling the Ultimate Upgrade for about $250. That's what I'll bet getting.

I should make it known that you cannot walk into a Staples store right now and buy a copy of Vista. They are only available via Staples.com. So, for those thinking of visting their local Staples sometime this weekend to pickup a copy- forget it. This is an online only deal.

If you want to walk in and buy it, wait till Monday. We'll be selling them then. ;)

Thanks for the information Redeemed. I'll wait till Monday and walk right in to the local Staples for my copy. I cancelled my order with Directron when it turned out they did not have any copies in stock last week.

Does anyone know if Best Buy will be selling Vista Ultimate x64 OEM? I'm kinda depending on a gift card for my copy, and $200 is the max. $230 for Home Premium Retail I could do, but I need Ultimate lol.

Wait until XP OEM is cheap (e.g. $50,) then upgrade from that to Ultimate. If that works, then you'd probably save upwards of $100.

I heard you need xp pro to use the upgrade version? I'm using xp home, can I get away with buying the home premium upgrade or do I need xp pro?

Sorry about that- you are correct. It is Tuesday that they will be available in-store.

My apologies and thanks AlphaWolf for pointing that out. ;)

Um I don't think it matters. If you are using XP Home you should be able to use any Vista Upgrade regardless of version. I don't see why you'd need Pro to upgrade- that'd be pretty dumb.

Look at the Best Buy add today--- is it me or is their NO indication that the Home Premium edition advertised for $159.99 is the upgrade version? I wonder if it is the retail edition.

It has to be. Circuit City has it advertised for the same price, and their ad clearly says it's the upgrade.

Costco and Walmart have Ultimate full retail for $365. You can walk in and pick it up. Best Buy also has them on the shelves, but wants $400.
