    It's $29 that's what checkout brings it to.

    That is pretty damn cool. I might even consider purchasing it now. Maybe even two copies, considering that I have two valid .edu addresses.

    I am running Win7 on one of my laptop's and I'm switching this (current) machine over to Win7 on Saturday (more time).

    I'm not sure what the cost was. The office provided it to me.

    Office for me was $99 but I'm sure the price on that will drop. I never really checked with my school's reduced software program so I don't know what student licensing costs probably like $30 or something.

    I refused to go with Vista and am still using XP. Anyone think that Win7 is going to be a good reason to upgrade?

    You can't use JTAG method in Windows Vista and Windows 7.

    XP is better if you're a programmer.

    This sounds pretty cool, at least a few people will buy it now rather then just downloading a pirated version.

    I can download Office Enterprise 2007 for free or buy the CD from the University's computer store for $8. Vista Ultimate (32/64bit) costs $15 and visual studio 2008 also costs $15.
    University at Buffalo rocks (and those prices are available to all students)

    Interestingly it's the same price as Apple's Snow Leopard upgrade, which I just picked up last night.. though that's available to everyone, not just students.

    Microsoft is starting to come across desperate.

    I don't think they are desperate. I think they are realizing that there are other options out there now - options that are just as good (or better) and more affordable (or free). Hopefully they will realize - especially in this economy - that their products are overpriced and people are slowly turning to those other options because of that.

    They need to make the products available to the general public for a lesser price. I mean, if they slashed the price in half or more, I imagine they would sell considerably more units, making up the difference and then some. And as someone else pointed out, less pirating as well.

    Just speculation!

    I would never have gotten Windows 7 if it weren't as cheap as we paid. We also got Office 2007 from the ExpertZone, and we never would have gotten that either. I would have been willing to spend $30 - or even a little more - for Windows 7 (as a non-student), but not much more considering that I use Linux as a desktop OS .... and it costs me nothing.

    I just did it today, $29.99. Just enter your .edu email and they fire you an email right away that sends you to the product page. It probably took me under 3 minutes to sign up, and purchase it. You select between 32 and 64 bit during purchase, and it says its a download. Should be fun!

    Yes it's legit. It's an offer from Microsoft themselves through Digital River and whoever the other one is. I believe this is the upgrade versions

    Amazing price. I've been using Win7 on several machines for the past few months and I've really come to love it. I think it may be one of the first MS products I shell some dough out for.
