Not sure if I want to fork out cash yet for Win 7 At least we have the RC for a while to come.
One large tech retailer (similar to best buy but down here) is offering an "install" service for Win 7 (you have to buy your own copy first) at a price of NZ$77.
I think they're trying to scam people who don't know anything. That is about US$50!!

ROFL; a service to install windows, that's funny. All you have to do for that is stick the DVD in. I'll do that for 50 bucks for as many people that want it. I couldn't do it that way though. I would have to do a custom install.
That just shows how large a percentage of the population is still scared of technology. I am sure the company charging is going to install it default from the DVD, and make sure it's updated (which is full auto with WIN 7 anyway), then leave for 50 bucks I'd do that all day (as fast as WIN 7 install is, I could do 6 or more a day easy).
