But about the CPU... That's really a mystery to me.
But, you donâ€™t have to wait until GA to get a new Windows PC. In fact, we know many people need that new PC sooner â€“ for back to school specifically. And we have the answer for people who need a new PC now but still want to get Windows 7 and thatâ€™s the Windows 7 Upgrade Option Program, which kicks off tomorrow, June 26th! Anyone who buys a PC from a participating OEM or retailer with Windows Vista Home Premium, Business or Ultimate on it will all receive an upgrade to the corresponding version of Windows 7 at little or no cost to customers. The Windows 7 Upgrade Option Program will be available until January 31st, 2010 â€“ and is global! For more information on taking advantage of the Windows 7 Upgrade Option Program, visit www.windows.com/upgradeoffer.

Further, upgrading from Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Home Premium would cost US$120. Which is only $9 less than the alleged $129 yearly OS X charge by Apple bashers. (Here in SillyDog701, we have examples.) For the facts: Apple did not roll out a new major Mac OS X version each year, and the latest Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard costs only $29.
