    I feel your pain. I missed out by 3 weeks.

    I'm wondering if it has a bios update built into it like the XP to Vista upgrade did. That would be sweet cos I don't fancy trying to mod the bios and ending up with a brick! Loaders are fine but screw up system recovery if it's ever needed. I tried installing a clean retail version of Win7 and updated drivers and apps from acer, but I couldn't get the empowering Technology stuff working. Kept complaining about operating system not supported. The only way I have successfully installed Win7 onto my Aspire 6930g is to perform an upgrade from the Retail dvd over the top of my existing Vista. And then use Hazars RemoveWAT.

    So yeh! access to the official Acer Windows 7 upgrade DVD would be interesting :)
