I have a sealed retail copy of Windows 7 Professional (Full, not an upgrade). UPC is 882224883436.  Asking $175 USD equivalent  in BTC.  I've been on these forums for over a year, but haven't really traded much (only given medical advice hehe).  I do have a perfect 342-0-0 rating on Heatware http://www.heatware.com/eval.php?id=955 (if you've ever traded on Anandtech you've probably seen me and I probably bumped your thread).  Also 397-0-0 on eBay.  I can do local trading in the Los Angeles area or can do escrow with a trusted member on the forums.  PM me if interested.

I will also have 4 copies of Win 7 Ultimate NFR available shortly.  I got them at an MSFT event during the Win 7 launch.  I think they're 32-bit but can be upgraded to 64-bit for free.  I just need to find where I hid them (got 2 babies running around destroying everything Tongue)

I was going to jump on this, but then I opened Amazon and saw it for $150 with free shipping ...

Just looked on Amazon and it's $249.60 http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-FQC-00129-Windows-7-Professional/dp/B002DHLVII/  Huh

I'll be happy to drop my price if you can show me the FULL version for $150 (not the upgrade)...

EDIT: Yeah, I think you were looking at the Upgrade version, a 3rd party is selling through Amazon for $155, but that's a cheaper version - not the same thing

ok thanks ... what are the differences ?
An upgrade version requires that you have a previous version as well, a full version allows you to do a new install without needing an old install.

Alot of people have been screwed by this, They think "Oh im buying win7pro" Uhh no, Your buying an upgrade (a scam) to win7pro

The OP is selling Win7pro (Is it 64bit or 32bit?/both?) that you could clean install to a blank HDD an boot into windows

The box says is has both 32-bit and 64-bit discs inside. This is the full retail version which doesn't require owning any previous Windows version - you do a install straight to a new HD.  The Upgrade version requires a previous activated Windows to be running from which the new install (or upgrade) will take place.

This is not actually true.  An upgrade version disc contains the full version of Windows.  You can do a clean install with it, without having a previous version of windows on your PC.  As long as you perform ALL the windows updates before you activate it (you have 3 days to activate after install), the code will work for the clean install.

Also just to advise op here is a link to a window 7 professional at $139.97, that's tigerdirect canada, so I am sure you can find it equivalent or cheaper in the states.

Yes as a MSFT shareholder I'm very well aware of all the tricks you can do to get Windows to install in different manners.  Why not just point to a Win 7 Torrent with the DAZ Activator  Roll Eyes

I am not selling an OEM version.  Please note the word "FULL RETAIL" in the title of the thread.

Sure not many people need this more expensive version, but if you're going to compare prices at least link to the correct one ($299 on TD): http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5019762&CatId=306

There are other members selling OEM copies.  I could grab them at Fry's for way cheaper than TD for resale, but that's besides the point.  I've priced my copy lower than what most have sold on eBay.
