In spite of hearing all the negative feedback on Windows Vista I am still very keen on upgrading my Acer laptop from XP to Vista. I had tried the Beta version of Vista on the laptop and worked pretty well.
I got my Acer 1690 laptop in the first quarter of 2006 and wasn’t aware that Acer was running a upgrade program for vista.
Acer’s Express Upgrade to Windows Vistaâ„¢ offer lets you enjoy all the benefits of Windows Vistaâ„¢ on your Acer computer. Any Acer Windows Vistaâ„¢ Capable or Windows Vistaâ„¢ Premium Ready PC bought between October 26, 2006 and March 15, 2007 includes an Express Upgrade to Windows Vistaâ„¢ option that presents you with the great innovations of Windows Vistaâ„¢.
Acer is providing the upgrade at a pretty reasonable price. A upgrade from Windows XP home to Windows Vista home costs 66$ and an upgrade to Windows Vista Premium will cost 96$. Acer is providing its customers with a vista upgrade DVD(along with drivers for the supported models) but it looks like its applicable to users who have bought PC after Oct 26 2006.
Why are the other customers left out ?
Does anybody know how to upgrade Acer laptop to vista ? I have shot this query to the Acer support;meanwhile if anybody has inputs on this please let me know.
