It's not a bad phone. The only things wrong with it is the terrible camera.

The same person who's offered me an iPhone has offered me a Galaxy S3, but I don't want it.


My main problems with it are problems I have with Android in general, and now that I have an iPad and my sister has a mac and is getting an iPhone, iMessage is a genuine attraction. Whatsapp is still better, but being able to receive and send messages directly from my iPad is fantastic.

You still haven´t told us what more you can do with a Windows 7 SP1 disk than you can with recovery discs created on a laptop.

You should probably use google to check these things first before you ask stupid questions and ruin your, "I work in PC World, I know everything about technology," aura.


Recovery disks vary wildly from OEM to OEM. They will never allow you to do a clean install of Windows. The best it will do is restore you to factory settings, with all the heinous bloatware that that entails.

You cannot stick them in anyone else's laptop, unless it's by the same OEM, and sometimes not even then (and forget about your home built desktop). This also means that when you get a new laptop, they're worthless. A Windows 7 Disk won't be.

A couple of OEMs also place a limit of one on the number of disks you can burn, would you believe. Good luck if you lose them.

Aren't they actually the same company?
