Windows 7 to emulate Snow Leopard pricing.. for students

Fri, Sep 18, 2009


Hot on the heels of reports that Snow Leopard sales have been through the roof comes news that Microsoft will lower the price for Windows 7 to $29 for qualifying students – meaning that you must have a valid .edu e-mail address, and can prove that you’re enrolled in “current coursework.”  The offer to students includes a downloaded edition of Windows 7 Home Premium, and those interested in obtaining an actual disc can do so for an additional $13.  The promotion is set to last until January 3, 2010.

Non-students interested in Windows 7, on the other hand, won’t be as fortunate, with pricing for the Home Premium edition of Windows checking in at $199, the Professional edition checking in at $299, and the Ultimate edition of Windows 7 checking in at a whopping $319.
