Windows 7: Are you going to buy Win7 at these Prices

I see a sweet business opportunity for them!

100-licenses Business/Pro = USD$3,000
Unlimited-licenses Business/Pro = USD$9,000

/Prices are steep, but worth it in the end.
//Used my phone's calculator instead of the computer
///Found out that when the BlackBerry Bold is on vibrate, the delete button in the calculator is the only thing that makes noise. How stupid! (Love the Bold, by the way)

Actually, enterprises have some awesome opportunities. I've read that 10,000 seat enterprises can get licenses for Office and Windows that are about $27/seat. Not bad.

MS takes care of the enterprise, that's their bread and butter.

I would imagine. It's probably how they got a grip on the entire computer world. I sure hope Microsoft makes the prices less than stated in the first post. 90% of my high school has switched to mac.

As for Office, they are definitely more than considerate with Enterprise. It has everything you need and more. I downloaded a version of Office called Blue Edition once, and it has Vundo.Gen in it (it forced me to delete all of my work and reinstall Windows). So if you're looking for Office Enterprise and come across Blue Edition, don't download it . Just thought I'd toss that out there.

I think MAC is pretty lame I've worked on a few and for what I do on a computer it would never work. 5 for $299 I agree was a little rich but would be a great price especially after what XP users say about Vista. I think I should get some return for dealing with them all the time lol. Oh ya and always fixing there PCs.

Excellent point. I have never brought directly from MS. All of my operating systems came preinstalled on my computer with a "reinstall" disc .

Official Prices are entirely tooooooooooooooo high.
I might buy from a nice Chineese site for:

That sounds about right... If not that then I'll just have to go

I was never able to find 64 bit when Vista came out, not at any retail store anyway.
When Vista first came out MS provided a coupon in the event the second 64bit disk wasn't included in the retail package at the time. Each edition bought retail saw their 64bit counterpart included with both disks using the same product key.

One thing I'm glad happened in some ways was missing out on the Ultimate edition of Vista when buying the 32bit Home Premium oem. The way 7 is now in comparison I won't hesitate to go for the retail 7 once out! I think MS finally got busy with this seeing little or no problems here!

Don't like the customizations though, like preinstalled programs, etc. Usually Dell is pretty good about that.

One of my computers, a Toshiba, came with a custom 2 DVD Windows Vista reinstallation disc.

My computer came with a 3-CD Vista Home Premium recovery disk. It came with NTI CD Burner and a Movie Making Program, along with the Acer Arcade Media Center Plugin. Let's not forget Norton 360 90-day trial.

Overall, Acer was pretty good about the crap they put on my computer.

The Egg makes prices by whim
NewEgg prices are a real mystery. The Kingston 120GB SSD SV300S37A was sold yesterday for $69.99, is on their website for $ 89.99 and they advertise it the same day for $113.94. Go figure.
