Which Windows 7 to Get??!!

Hey All-

I am building a new system and it's time to buy Windows 7. I have the three below options.


Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Full for 179.99 through Newegg.

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders - OEM for 99.99 through Newegg.

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional Upgrade for $77.00 through windows because im a college student.. My friends have told me that I can install the full version through the upgrade cd.


So my question is which is the best to go with? and.. What is the diffence between the System Builders Home Premium and the Full?? Why the price difference?

Thanks in advance!

  1. Get the 64-bit home edition.

    I think the full home edition comes with 32-bit and 64-bit dvds.
  2. Personally, I prefer Professional (which is what I have) because it does have features like Location Aware Printing that are helpful if you're constantly out, but have particular places that you like to print from.

    You can check out a side-by-side comparison here, though: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/products/compare
