Microsoft has turned British passports into Windows 7 discount coupons. According to the British arm of tech website Cnet, the
full version of Windows 7 Home Premium will be selling for about $105 (£65) in the UK
, at almost half its US price, which is $200 (£122). The full version in the UK is even cheaper than the upgrade version on the other side of the Atlantic. The upgrade version costs $120 (£72) in the US.
An Amazon.co.uk spokesperson told Cnet that this unbelievable price is to stay indefinitely. However, Microsoft is still to return the website’s call for comment on the issue. Ask your British cousins to carry some spare Windows 7 Home Premium copies in their baggage the next time they sail across.
