Was great. I got Windows 7 Business for 20 dollars and Microsoft Office Ultimate for 60 which is originally 600-something on the microsoft store.

All I needed was a student email (ending in .edu)

I had already ordered the cyberpower machine when this article was posted. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who thinks its a good deal.

 It has TWO floppy cutouts! Do not see that very much these days. What was a floppy storage, 1.4 MegaBytes or something? Now THAT would damn useful in comparison to my 32GB flash drive!

well just off the top of my head what i would do with them,  well there are 3.5 inserts for fan control's,  or a 32 in one multi card reader,  maybe a cup holder or hidden storage spot same kind that they make for the 5.25 slots comes in 3.5.  and the list goes on, i modded my 3.5 for a hidden spot for my power, reset button and fan control nob.  that just to name a few things you can do.

I keep a multi-card reader in mine. But what puzzles me is why mobo manufacturers keep a floppy slot on the board? The last two boards (my most recent is an ASUS M3A78-EM) I bought have one single primary IDE but still has a place for the floppy. I know EIDE drives have fallen in popularity as compared to the SATA, but how many people buy new dual- and quad-core boards and still use a floppy drive???

 Computer cases still come with the 3.5" cutou for any number of things. From Memory card readers, to mini-tape backup drives. Floppy drives are still in circulation!

An unformatted floppy diskette held 1.44MB, once it was formatted for an IBM Compatible PC, it's capacity was around 1.38MB.

Don't laugh at the floppy diskette, it's not used much anymore, but it's a technology that still hasn't died off completely!

Haha, I just finished my Black Friday spending spree... Star Wars: KOTOR on Steam for $2.50!

BTW, it's tough to get excited about $100 off a Mac at the Apple store when you can order the same Mac from Amazon for $150 less than Apple charges any day of the year. Plus no sales tax.

fwiw, Steam has had some pretty awesome deals leading up to this most blessed of shopping days.  Check out the Lucasarts game pack -- $50 for 16 titles!

 $100 off a Mac is a HUGE discount! OMG! Apple is really taking a hit here!

TheMurph

haha.  given how rarely apple offers a discount on its wares, it's something, eh?

avatar

Caboose

 OH ya.

 Still doesn't make me want to fork over any dough for the Apple anal rapage though...

Considering you could probably get $100 off any Apple computer using a Student Discount anyway and you probably can't stack discounts...

avatar

TheMurph

*shrug* a deal is a deal!  Not everyone is crafty enough to use a student discount for their mac purchases...
