Microsoft's latest promotion adds one more reason why it's a good idea to stay in school. How does Windows 7 Home Premium (Upgrade) for 30 bucks sound? That sounds like a smokin' hot deal to us, and if you're a student at a qualifying college or university, you can pounce on this pricing.
According to Microsoft's terms and conditions , the Windows 7 Academic Offer runs until January 3rd, 2010, although there's a small chance Digital River, the e-commerce site driving the promo, could extend the offer. If eligible, students can choose between Windows 7 Home Premium or Professional, though it's unclear how much extra Professional runs.
These are download versions, though for $13, Microsoft says it will send you a disk.
