Microsoft announced recently that they are offering a very good deal for college students in the United State and in the United Kingdom. This deal allows students to purchase a Windows 7 Home Premium license for $29.99 compared to the normal price of $119.99. This promotion ends on January 3rd, 2010 and after that it will go back to normal pricing for college students. So if you are in college, this is too good of a deal to pass up. Even if you do not plan on upgrading immediately, it would be a smart decision to take advantage of this promotion in order to get Windows 7 at such a great price for a future upgrade. The links to the related sites are below.

Just as a note Windows 7 will be available for students at a discount on The Ultimate Steal. I am not sure of the date, but my guess is that it will not be too long after the Oct. 22 date when Windows 7 becomes available to the general public.

My college tops that. I'm gonna try and get Win7 Ultimate Upgrade for just the cost of the DVD being mailed to me. It's going to be around 18$ I believe.

Really? I didn't know this was a contest, but hey, my college tops that. I get mine free. Perhaps you should see if your IT department has an MSDNAA account. :thumbsup:

Haha. I should buy one, they said somewhere that buying the Ultimate Version is the best deal, since they are all $29.99 across the board.

They are also offering this to other countries in 2010.
Who said I couldn't have everything?

Thanks for telling us this, especially about the Microsoft Office software that will be really useful for me on my Uni course (My first IT session on Monday, Programming Concepts, nice start :thumbsup:), I can get free software off my Uni, I think Dreamweaver might be one of them (don't know yet since I haven't been given a account to download the software) but I can't get the Office Software like Word, Powerpoint or Excel so 39 is great to get the full package.

Just a question about Windows 7, will it be a CD/DVD sent in the post or will it be a download?
Plus is it an Upgrade or the Full version?

I'm currently running Vista Home Premium on my laptop and do have the OEM disc so it's no problem if it messes up, but I will assume if I install Windows 7 it will mean I have to reinstall all my software again?

They should be sending DVD's to you. There is so many things wrong with a download, it would take a good 6 hours on my connection, downloading a good 2-3 GB.

Yep I'd of assumed a CD or DVD just asking to make sure, it took me about 3-4 hours to download the Windows 7 RC so would have been a similar for this.

Oh no... the debate is on again... Windows vs. Linux...

This sounds like a pretty good deal!! Wish they would do a similar sort of thing in Australia!! But i don't see that happening...
