Summary: Today I received the box which was supposed to include the 25 character key to activate the product. The box did not include the product key. I just returned this empty box which is worth nothing and I asked for my money back. I feel I was ripped off!!!!!!!
Summary: Only purchase if you can have a disk mailed to you.
Cons: Cannot activate. On the phone two hours last Friday and got a call back from level two support today with no resolution. Three hours on the phone and a supervisor suggested I get a refund and purchase again. Newegg says I have to resolve it with Microsoft as they are just a reseller.
Summary: Key only, guessing on win8 you use the key in MS's yet-another-app-store, but unlike app stores we've been using for years now, its an install-once-buy-again system. Win7 install requires hoop jumping to get download.
Pros: Nothing new of considerable vavlue.
Cons: New licensing scheme locks license to physical hardware. If your computer fails, you will have to buy another copy at full price again.
