Yeah thats fair enough mate, but you cant realy compare them prices without knowing the version to compare with. To answer your question tho, the UK tend to pay a higher price for vista, it has been debated in a lot of PC magazines lately.

I lie, it was the upgrade version, still retail though.. I suppose it's fine is you have XP..

I think alot of people who know what they are doing will just get a copy of XP, one way or another, then just upgrade straight away.. save them a few bob.
