Did the upgrade this past weekend. The upgrade was done on my HP G60-230CA laptop, which had Vista Home Premium on it. Upgrading to 7 Pro required a full install, but general wisdom indicates that's a good idea even if you can upgrade in-place.

I backed up my files and had installation disks ready for various software I would install. I started the installation process, and went for dinner. I came back to the computer and the install was finished. Much faster than an XP install in my experience. I didn't need to install any drivers - Win7 had loaded the appropriate bits on startup. This is a huge plus over XP and Vista. I proceeded to install my various software packages, and did much customizing. Haven't had one issue along the way. The wireless feature quickly found my network and the various connected devices.

Things I like in Windows 7:
-Good to go after installation, no searching for drivers
-Less intrusive UAC
-Plug-and-play USB devices are handled better than Vista did
-Broad customization options
-Aero flip, peek, snap
-XP mode reduces application compatibility issues
-Network backup

At this point, the only real con I have is the price: the Pro upgrade costs noticeably more than the Home Premium upgrade. However, I was prepared to pay, since I knew I wanted Pro for the higher-end features. If you are uncertain on needing Pro now, get the Home Premium, and you can do an anytime upgrade later.

After all that, my comment is this: if you need built-in network backup, XP Mode, or other Pro-level features, and are of a mind to spend the money, then go for it. If not, perhaps Home Premium is good enough for you.

Windows 7 is a solid operating system and recovers well from potential errors. Use it both at work and at home and have not had any serious problems. The backup feature works well and is strongly recommended.

It's Windows 7 pro, the "upgrade" edition. It comes with 32 & 64 bit disks and does what it is supposed to do.
This is a good product and I've had no problems anywhere between delivery & deployment.

As support for Win XP is over in the near future, I had to look for a replacement. Tried Win 7 and Win 8 (Pro). There is no saving to go with Win 7 but some professional software I use has not upgrade to Win 8 yet so the choice was obvious.

Update to previous Comment:

I have previously given this product 2 stars due to drivers issues.

After using Windows 7 for a while now I have to admit that this is the best system that Microsoft has ever made; I figured why my system was crashing constantly and this was due to the drivers that Nvidia made for my card which were not properly set for Windows 7.

I upgraded my video card, a better Nvidia card, and never had any issues since.

This system is blazing fast! I love Windows 7.

The only cons I have are the following:

I wish I never bought Vista which has tainted my goodwill towards Microsoft.

I wish that I bought the full blown version instead of the upgrade due to the ease of installation of the full version since you can do a clean install without the need of a previous windows system being installed.

P.S. I still have a version of Vista which I still hate and I am not using.

Kudos to Microsoft for windows 7.

Been testing Windows 7 since it's public BETA release and I must say this is by far the best Windows version Microsoft ever developed. They finally listened to what people wanted. I highly recommend this version of Windows.
