Hi colleagues,
I am in doubt: is "in-box upgrade" a phisical package of software offered with hardware/software product or upgrades distributed by mailing list to clients' inboxes.

Here is the context:
In addition, HP offers outstanding investment protection and cost savings to PA-RISC customers with in-box upgrades from HP 9000 rp7410-8/rp7420-16 servers to the HP Integrity rx7620.
The Superdome can take advantage of the latest future Intel Itanium 2 technologies with simple in-box upgrades.

Many thanks

Without having to purchase customisations (usually expensive) Apr 22, 2007

I think they mean that your upgrades are standard and that you can simply buy one when other software related to your PC is ugraded instead of having to ask a "software house" to provide customisations because your "basic" operating system, for example, has changed (being upgraded).
