Like you, I’ve been using the RC since it was released by MS and on the whole, I’ve have been very happy with it.
I took advantage of MS’s substantial discount by pre-ordering the OS, and they arrived on Thursday. I ordered 2 x HP and 1 x Pro.
I expected it to the the ‘E’ version but it turned out to be the full retail version, with all the trimmings including the IE browser, basically, the same as the US version 🙂
I paid a total of £180 for all three :woohoo :rock
