Default Re: 3-pack Vista Ultimate for $199? Too good to be true?

So should we trust these deals found on picegrabber and amazon? Because if so we could make some good profit on ebay with these.

Yeah dude look at this auction you could make mad money.

Although, I wouldn't use 32-bit Vista for myself, its not worth it.

Yeah, I would only get the 64-bit version of windows. I think I might try to buy one of these versions of vista in a week or 2 and mke some profit, lol.
Looked at that auction, lol, if you could buy a 3 pack of ultimate for $200, and sell each one for $250, that would be some great profit.

I doubt anyone will actually buy that. Experienced computer users will realize the price is outrageous, and newbies would prefer that their local tech support store do it for them.

And borat, it depends if you're buying a 32 bit or 64 bit computer.

Yeah, in fact, Tigerdirect sells one of those for the same price as they are selling "three." Maybe they made a mistake, one to take advantage of

Well, there are already pretty high bids for this one, and that should go up higher. People may not buy them for 250, but at least ~175ish. People are stupid.

It seems that tigerdirect has all versions in the 3-packs from amazon. But check out the link below to see a 1 pack at a great deal.

Yeah, thats an academic version, though. Don't know how it differs, but there has to be a catch.
