Press release

Windows 7 Tech Guarantee Upgrade program launches Monday

June 26, 2009: Portsmouth, UK: Novatech Ltd, UK's leading PC and laptop manufacturer announced today a free upgrade program to Microsoft's latest operating system, Windows 7.  Commencing Monday 29th June, all Novatech PCs and laptops installed with Windows Vista* will be shipped with a voucher code to be redeemed for a full free copy of Windows 7 from 31st August.

Customers will have up to February 28th 2010 to claim their free upgrade.  Options will be based on a like for like basis including 32bit and 64bit editions:

                Vista Home Premium upgraded to Windows 7 Home Premium

                Vista Business upgraded to Windows 7 Professional

                Vista Ultimate upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate

XP downgrade rights are also available on Vista Business and Ultimate, which is makes a great option for customers who'd prefer to jump from Windows XP to Windows 7.

"The new operating system is a breath of fresh air" remarked Kriss Pomroy, Commercial Director, Novatech Ltd "For the first time in 5 years, Windows 7 demonstrates some true innovation; we're delighted to be able to offer all our customers an upgrade completely free of charge".

A full reinstallation of Windows 7 will be required to upgrade from Vista which could potentially wipe user's documents and files.  Novatech will be offering external hard drives and USB media accompanied with technical support to help customers backup their data for safe keeping.

As part of EU ruling, Windows 7 will not ship with Internet Explorer 8.  However an additional installation CD can be requested at the time of applying for the upgrade.  The voucher code can be redeemed on windows7upgradeoption.com, where delivery details will be taken and shipped within 28 days from Microsoft's launch date on 22nd October.
