    I am slightly confused about the upgrade and full versions of Vista. If I get the upgrade version it uses my key from my current windows and I won't be able to use it anymore, right? My question is, is the upgrade version exactly the same as the full version? If I change hardware in my computer or get a new computer in the future and get rid of this one I can move it over? So basically I am asking if it is exactly the same, but I just lose my current os. Thanks

    Upgrade will allow you to install Vista on any computer that has XP installed. Whereas the full version will let you install Vista on any type of computer.
