are you going to buy 7 on release date? or close to it?
then don't waste time with Betas and RC, get the RTM build, make sure you install the correct version that you are going to buy, and install it with no key.
That will give you 30 days, when your 30 day limit will be close to running out, use the rearm command, that will extent it by another 30 days.
You can use rearm 3 times, that gives you 120 days.
Then when your final retail product arrives use that key to activate.
