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)
If you can live with the limitations, this is a cheap way of getting your hands on Windows 7.
