Windows 7 Professional at $29.99 for US students

Microsoft always has the sweetest deals for schools and college students. In a new initiative called College Ready – Career Ready, Microsoft is offering massive discounts to students on purchase of Windows 7 and Office 2010.


By paying just $29.99, students can acquire an upgrade license of Microsoft hottest selling product Windows 7 Professional. This means that you must already be a licensed user of either Windows XP or Windows Vista. There is another catch – the offer is available only to students in the United States.

At retail, Windows 7 Professional Upgrade comes with a price tag of $199.99, $100 less than the full edition of the OS, which sells for $299.99. $29.99 is a killer deal.

Similar discount exist on Office 2010 which is being offered at $79.95. Unlike the Windows 7 license, Office 2010 will be the full product. This is another excellent deal for a product that retails at $499.99.

“Eligible students may purchase up to three licenses (of Windows 7), but no more than one license from each of the numbered sections above per valid e-mail address or billing address. Eligible students can obtain the software by downloading or ordering a disk from the official Offer web site. The cost for ordering disk(s) is $13.00. Product keys will be provided on the purchase confirmation page and sent to the student's eligible educational institution email address entered into the Offer web site during the purchase process,” Microsoft added.
