Now that Windows 7 is officially here, Best Buy wants to help you make the transition to the new operating system. In addition to selling the new platform and many Windows 7-equipped PCs in store, the company's Geek Squad is offering Windows 7 upgrade services for just $39.99, excluding the price of the software. Normally, Geek Squad's operating system install service charge is $129.99.

Of course, Best Buy is also selling a variety of PCs that come preloaded with Windows 7. A new exclusive bundle from HP is dubbed “PC Home Makeover.” For $1,199.99, you'll get an HP desktop, monitor, laptop, netbook, wireless router, and Geek Squad setup and networking. This offer will be available until mid-January.

“Customers tell us they want the flexibility of multiple machines and networking, and together with HP we’ve created a robust solution at a very attractive price,” said Jason Bonfig, vice president of computers at Best Buy. “Only Best Buy can give you all of the computer products you want plus a Geek Squad house call to make sure your new gear is setup and connected and helping you share content like movies, music and pictures.”

For users who purchased a PC from Best Buy between June 26, 2009 and October 21, 2009, there's a good chance you'll qualify for a free upgrade on Windows 7 software. To see if you do, bring your PC and sales receipt to the nearest Geek Squad location. Assuming you qualify, you'll get a free Windows 7 upgrade installed on your computer.

I don't use Geek Squad for anything, anytime, ever.

Search for 'Geek Squad Horror stories' on Google to see why.
