Question about free windows 7 upgrade.

HP Recommended

I purchased an hp laptop on the 23rd and seen that Hp offers the free upgrade to windows 7 on notebook purchased after the 26, now i was wondering if becaus i purchased my notebook so close to the 26 that maybe hp would honor the upgrade? If not all i would have to do is return the notebook at the store and purchase it again?

 

Thanks

 

Gunner

As far as I know_June 26 and later is the only date that qualifies. You can of course return it as you've mentioned.Only other option is to purchase the pre-order of Win 7 for $49.

This upgrade offer is disgusting. Only if your machine has any Vista OS except basic.  Microsoft rethink this offer as it is not on.

Why is that disgusting?

You can still do the upgrade, just not an in-place upgrade.

I could understand it if my unit was say six months old but it's not. Why wasn' there any P O S advertising advising of this free upgrade at the store" not in any mags or Forums" prior to this date. .And to state that the basic Vista wasn't included  is a bit much .When is Vista not Vista? when it's basic!

If you are running Vista basic you might not have the system requirements to upgrade to Windows 7.

find out here:

don't be angry because you didn't do reasearch before you bought your product.

Hello. Firstly there was no info in the shop  that there would be an upgrade so soon after my purchase. Secondly according to an email from HP c.s  my unit is more than capable of using the upgrade.

Hello samschilling. Just received this from the UK C.S  Seems that they say one thing and you another?

No info in the shop, huh?  The sure does constitute a lot of research on your part.

Windows 7 has been announced for the better part of a year.
