Windows 7 – $30 for Students

Windows 7, the next and most updated operating system for home PC’s is getting closer to release on October 22nd. Coming with new improvements, upgrades and an eye pleasing new “glass” look, the OS should please owners of both powerful and underpowered machines alike.

Any student with a valid student email address are eligible to get a copy of Windows 7 Home Premium or Professional, 32-bit or 64-bit for only a mere $30. The student will have the choice on which version they get, because presumably students with weaker net-books may want a less demanding version (but less features).

Windows aren’t the only ones being generous, with apple offering their new operating system “Snow Leopard” for $29, beating Microsoft’s Windows 7 price by $1.

This offer will continue until January 3, 2010 at 12 a.m. CST. So you should, if you’re a student have plenty of time to pick up a copy as this offer is way to sweet to give up. The deal is found on the win741.com site, a recently launched site from Microsoft.

This move seems like a smart one by Microsoft, considering apple have beat Microsoft (Home Premium (upgrade) retailing for $120 and $200 for a Professional upgrade) on the standard prices with Snow Leopard. ($29).
