Great Deal, this has the xp compatibility on it

@snaggstuff: This sounds too good to be true, not trying to imply anything but I bet you'd sell more if we had an idea of where these came from, thanks :-)

I'm with @snaggstuff on this one. Legality check?

I'd venture to guess that they are from Dell. (slightly sarcastic) But seriously, they are probably left-over from all of the missed "free" upgrade opportunities that were offered. I know the one which was available for my girlfriends PC is still on Dell's shelf.

@okcengineer: Indeed sir. These are likely from DELL, or someone that bought them out from DELL (or handed to whomever for the upgrades) and now being sold. If they come with the product key to allow you to perform a clean install on any brand computer than this is definitely a good deal. $80 for 32-bit OR 64-bit Win7 Pro.

Paypal doesn't work. Says they can't pay this vendor. Likely a spoof?

twitter account says they are in the process of reactivating the paypal process. I'm annoyed as well but I'm thinking of giving it a try....

For that price at least.....

vote-for3vote-against

Great price, but I also wasn't able to use PayPal. Until they've got their act squared away, I don't think I'll trust them with my CC - feels too fly-by-night.

PayPal is still down. I would definitely NOT buy this from them until they get PayPal back up and running; something's fishy here...

vote-for1vote-against

PayPal indicates this merchant is unable to receive payments. No explanation as to why. I found a comment in SnaggStuff's "community" from Thursday that they can now again recieve PayPal funds but obviously that isn't really happening. I too am hesitant to offer my credit card to buy what is otherwise a great deal. Also, the SnaggStuff site says they change their deal every morning, but it didn't switch this morning - maybe because it's Saturday? Or maybe their PayPal problems are causing them to linger on this deal?

Worse comes to worse there's always credit card protection.

Just tried PayPal and it is still not up and running.

Guess next week or just let the deal go by. They will probably put the deal up again once they have PayPal working.

I'd wait until they take paypal before sending them any money. (Even if I'm not paying with paypal.)

From what I understand, when paypal thinks someone is selling counterfeit goods, they will block the account's ability to accept payments until the person can prove where the items are coming from.

So paypal is probably asking the same questions you all were: Is this legit?

vote-for2vote-against

I just checked on them again and they have removed the option to pay with PayPal so something is up with them.

Better to give a wide birth then take the chance of getting burned.

P.S. I just have a bad feeling on this one.

vote-for2vote-against

Says it is now currently sold out.

vote-for2vote-against

They took it off, its a dead link now :-(

I bought it; I got it; It's all they advertised! And I'm a happy camper :)
