$30. £30. Windows 7. Seriously.

US: Go here and enter your college email addy. They'll send you a validation e-mail if you're eligible (I was), and from there you can purchase a code and download Windows 7.

UK: Go here, but it doesn't start until September 30 and is only available for a limited time.

Kinda crap that, taking exchange rates into account, you Brits pay more, but what can you do

For a mere £30 I'd pay for it rather than downloading some shoddy cracked internet version. Plus they'll probably have alot of "genuine windows" crap like in XP and vista, only working. Plus you'll get the support stuff.

I can't do the deal, but still...1

I was going to do this, but I notice you need a genuine copy of Vista or XP which I don't have (on linux). Does anyone know if they'll actually check or anything? Is this an upgrade or will I actually get the disc?



Its a download so i assume you need a non cracked copy of vista or xp

On the other hand, students (in the UK at least) can also get Windows Server 2008 for free. Apparently it's quite easy to convert it into a normal desktop and it runs super-quick

I might try this if you need Vista / XP to get 7. Much as I hate to say it, I really need a windows OS

the pound is worth double the canadian dollar and and about 1 and 2/3 or more the american. Easier to just double it, so if it's 30 american dollars it's around 15-20 pounds.

BTW I don't even know how to make the pound symbol.

Cool, I'm eligible. I need to check the technology department at my school though, they may have a better deal or even offer the upgrade free. Though I may need to buy an external hard drive to back up all my files...

I'm in high school so no deal for me. I would pay $30 and get a legal copy but I can't.

Quote by Kensai
some shoddy cracked internet version..
There is an untouched ISO of the RTM build. Untouched meaning it's exactly how MS released it. The activators make Windows think your computer is an OEM computer from HP/Dell/whatever and it lets you use an OEM key. An OEM has been leaked. It's not shoddy unless you are a noob at the internet and download one that has been messed with.

I dunno, I have vista right now on my computer, I also have an XP disc but I cba to install it . Chances are I'll need that 30 dollars anyway, but still, cool deal bro. Rock out to those that take advantage of it.

Bastards don't support my school, I don't wanna wait 1-2 weeks

Then again, whatever this comes out to after exchange, <100$ for Windows 7 sounds pretty damn good to me. I never bothered to download any of the RCs because I didn't care that much to try, but since I'm guessing this is the final release version, I'm gonna go for it.

Thirty bucks for an OS that's only slightly upgraded from the one I'm running?

Meh.
It's a good step up from Vista and a huge step up from XP.

actually, it's a huge step up from vista
much much faster and better looking, uses a lot less memory
also it's designed to run on less power without compromising on performance which is a plus for laptop users


I got my copy for free, but I'd easily pay $30 for it if I didn't
