Hi,
I am planning to buy win7 home premium in a cheapest way possible.

Newegg.com - Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 32-bit for System Builders w/ Tech Guarantee - Operating Systems

I have found this above link. It says USD 110 with upgrade option to win 7 home premium. I have my sister who is in usa and then i can arrange to get it here in india.

Can aany one give me any more cheaper website to get win7?

if you know someone who is a microsoft employee... the company store sells them at a bargain price. you should have ordered it 2 months ago when the upgrade was just around USD 50.

well its not really a favor since you are going to pay for it. :Sthey just need to buy a copy at the company store and give you the serial number. you get the copy whenever it is convinient! vista ultimate was priced at around USD 40. i am not sure about the win 7 pricing. so think again. ..you are supporting their company by buying original software! no one should get annoyed by that.

coz OEM copies are designed to be sold with a brand new machine. they are not sold in the retail market.
