    Yes I've seen plenty of "full retail-unopened" copies, I always ask the vendor to confirm in writing that it is not an OEM or some other restricted copy. Most don't respond, those that do admit that...

    I have had "issues" with this HP Envy (Win 7 SP1) almost since new, small things, but they just keep adding up. The touch pad stopped working properly, still worked, but I couldn't slide up and down...

    Thank you for that link Prescott, certainly kills off any curiosity about Win 10. The only thing I find curious is that so many will share so much with so many. This one statement from MS would stop...
