Windows 7 OEM pricing emerges ... some serious discounts available
Posted by Adrian Kingsley-Hughes @ 3:27 am
Online retailer Newegg.com has listed various editions of Windows 7 OEM, and there are some deep discounts on offer.
Here are the numbers:
* Windows 7 Home Premium OEM: $99.99 (full version retails for $199.99)
* Windows 7 Professional OEM: $134.99 (full version retails for $299.99)
* Windows 7 Ultimate OEM: $174.99 (full version retails for $319.99)
Those are some really deep discounts indeed.
Some points worth noting about Windows 7 OEM:
* No retail packaging, you’ll get little more than a cardboard sleeve containing a DVD.
* Very limited tech support.
* OEM licensing means that once installed, the software (or more specifically, the product key) is tied to a single machine)
