Default Ebay... looking to buy Windows 7.

While this could probably go in general software or whatnot, This is about ebay itself, not the OS.

I'm looking at http://cgi.ebay.com/MICROSOFT-WINDOW...item53dfd638ea over and since I have not used it in ages, I would like to know if anyone can find a fault in this listing. Shipping used to be the way they got you with 15 dollars or so, but I'm not seeing anything.

This appeard to be a fully usable full version of Windows 7 Home premium 64 bit at $120 with free shipping. Anyone else more savvy see something else?

Is there some reason the OEM version won't work?

Aside from the fact that the OEM on Newegg is considerably less expensive, I wouldn't trust an eBay sale for legit software. Maybe it's fine, maybe it's not, but I see no reason to take the risk if you can avoid it and save money at the same time.

Actually, that works fine... I didn't know Newegg sold windows 7. This works out better. It's nice I don't have to let my ignorance for ebay get in the way now.
