I currently have Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit. My laptop is great, it handles Vista very easily. But... I kind of want to jump on the Windows 7 bandwaggon.

What would be my best bet? Buy the Upgrade, or the full thing?

What are the pros and cons of each? Other than the price difference of course, heh.

Thanks!

If your Vista is running fine, you won't gain much by going to 7.

If you already have Vista installed then you should just buy the Upgrade.

Clean install is always preferred way to go, so if you really want to go to Windows 7, buy full version.
Full version DVD will be also helpful in case of troubleshooting.

You should use Microsoft's "Check To See If Your Computer Is Ready For 7" program. I can't find the link though, sorry.
