I can get Windows Vista Basic/Premium/Ultimate OEM for my home computer for $50(Basic), $120(Premium), or $200(Ultimate) from my local store with my college ID. It is the full version and not an update. I want the Ultimate but I am wondering what am I losing by buying the OEM version. I have heard that you dont get any Microsoft support. If so then will dell give me support? Also what else am I lacking? Would you recommend I get the OEM version or should I just buy a $160 Premium upgrade(sigh ). I dont want the upgrade but I can afford to buy the full version of premium or ultimate unless they are the OEM versions. Thanks in advance.
