4.0 out of 5 stars (ALMOST) As Easy as A, B, C December 23, 2010
Access Method:Box| Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
I give this product 4 stars. 5 Stars for the quality of features unlocked and less 1 star for the hoops and hurdles involved in getting the Win 7 XP mode to be fully functioning.

Well, if you were previously like me, having a Win 7 Home Premium O/S, hesistant about spending an extra US$129.99 (as at the time of writing) for an O/S upgrade, there are a couple of things you might want to know before taking the plunge.

My Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q898 laptop (also bought from Amazon) came pre-installed with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. Unless you require practical features such as Bitlocker, XP Mode and the ability to use other languages for your O/S, the Ultimate edition is an overkill for the typical consumer. Well, as for "intangible" benefits, running Win 7 Ultimate comes with bragging rights too... ;) hee hee

This product will only upgrade Win 7 Home Premium 32 Bit/64 Bit to Win 7 Ultimate 32Bit/64Bit respectively. It will not work with any other combination of OSes. For e.g., if you currently have Win 7 HP 32 Bit, you will only get Win 7 Ultimate 32 Bit, NOT Win 7 Ultimate 64 Bit. Another e.g., if you have Win 7 Starter, Win XP (any variant) or Vista (any variant), this product will not work.

This product does not come with any discs, neither DVD nor CD. You are actually purchasing a serial-number printed onto a little card. The card itself is enclosed in a plastic box the size of one's palm. The plastic box is itself wrapped by a cardboard sleeve. This is what one would expect to physically receive from purchasing this product.

On my system,it only took 5 mins to perform the upgrade. I attribute this to the SSD boot drive on my system. MS states that the upgrade will take 10mins.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Upgrade for Laptop users. March 7, 2010
Access Method:Box| Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
Most laptops (including the one I bought at the same time) seem to come with Windows 7 Home Premium (even those aimed at business users).

Windows 7 Ultimate has the Bitlocker feature which encrypts your hard drive. It's a very worthwhile feature on a laptop.

The difference in price between the upgrade to Ultimate vs the lower priced Professional made this an easy decision.

Too bad the prices aren't this close in the regular upgrade editions.

The anytime upgrade feature is quick and dirty. It involves entering the product key and a couple of reboots. It took me about 10 minutes to complete. The bits are already in your OS.

You can actually do this all from within Windows (including the purchase of the Key from Microsoft), but you will save money buying it here instead.

The packaging for this is overkill as it just contains a card with your product key printed on it (I am keeping the packaging though since it will lessen the likelihood of my misplacing the product key). The steps are the same, sans purchase.

Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PC Disc
I finally did my first Windows 7 Anytime Upgrade last week, from Home Premium to Ultimate. I wanted to get Ultimate for two reasons: one, XP Mode (really, just so I could run a few "experimental" programs within the virtual PC, to avoid screwing up my real PC), and two, BitLocker, which encrypts the entire hard drive (or hard drives) with industry-standard strong encryption in a transparent-to-user manner (I keep sensitive financial data on my Toshiba laptop).

The upgrade was incredibly painless. I got the upgrade key and just entered it into the upgrade dialog box. Since I had just installed all recent important updates, the upgrade took less than 10 minutes on my one-year-old Toshiba laptop, with a quad-core i7 processor, 4GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive at 5400 RPM. Earlier today I upgraded another Toshiba laptop (this one with dual-core AMD) which I hadn't used in 2 months, so the Anytime Upgrade had to download all the updates, but the whole thing took less than 30 minutes.

BTW, XP mode is awesome. It's super-fast and very robust. I only allocate 512MB to XP mode and everything runs great inside the virtual machine. (My laptops both have hardware virtualization support.) I can imagine running IE inside XP mode, so I wouldn't need any anti-malware services running in the background, as great as Microsoft Security Essentials is. The fewer background services, the better.

BitLocker works as expected, and I can now sleep better knowing my financial data cannot be stolen (unless the thief also manages to steal the USB drive with the passkey backup). It feels faster than Home Premium, but this could be purely psychological. :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Windows 7 Anytime Upgrade Ultimate edition January 7, 2010
Access Method:Box| Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
So far the OS is great. You save money when purchasing the upgrade but there is no disk. After you purchase the upgrade you must download it and then install it. Just remember to make a recovery disk after you upgrade your version of your OS and you'll be fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars WINDOWS ULTIMATE - VERY STEADY OS January 6, 2011
Access Method:Box| Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
Windows has come a long way since '98! I did an Anytime Upgrade from Home Premium to Ultimate. I wanted to encrypt my drive but found out your computer needs a special chipset in order to be able to encrypt the drive the OS is located on. You can still encrypt other drives but you can't automatically "unlock" them unless you encrypt the OS partition and have that special chipset on your computer's mobo. I like the transparent XP mode. Some other good features but it is debatable with regard to whether to extra price is worth it overall. The difference in the upgrade price between the "low - medium - high" versions of the OS pretty much dictates, "go for broke" because the price difference is so small. Overall, Windows 7 is a winner. I'm glad to see Microsoft finally has a stable, self-healing OS!
