Well it appears that Amazon have sold out of Windows 7 Home Premium E (and at that price no wonder)

Amazon said that sales of Windows 7 in the first eight hours it was available outstripped those of Windows Vista's entire 17 week pre-order period.

and although the listing for Home Premium has now appeared back on the site again, but with a header "This item is currently not available." and no price listed

for those that missed out, it is still available from Play.com but at the Microsoft price of £49.99

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium E / Retail

[edit]

and both versions are listed as "out of stock" at Ebuyer (if they ever had it in stock)

Tesco.com only have Windows 7 Professional @ £ 99.97

pcworld still lists Home Premium E as available at £44.99 BUT with a delivery price of £4.84

comet still lists Home Premium E as available at £ 49.99

currys still lists Home Premium E as available at £ 44.99 BUT with a delivery price of £ 5.95

confirmed that the "special deal" is over at Amazon.co.uk (they exhausted their stock allocation in the first 8 hours)

they are now listing:

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium E at the regular preorder price of £ 74.97 (£ 149.99 in Jan 2010)

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional E at the regular preorder price of £ 179.97 (£ 219.99 in Jan 2010)

[edit]

the "special deal" is also over at Play.com, they are now using the regular preorder prices too

Yep, knew they would go fast so grabbed mine straight away at lunchtime the first day,

especially once I saw that amazon's price was even lower than the £49.99 suggested by MS for the "special"

Japan only took 1.5 days (of the 10 days planned) to burn though the alloted inventory (30,000 copies) of "heavily discounted " Win 7 preorder

the 17 retailers involved reported sales as "considerable"
