Thanks Wolfgang, I got one of these deals two years ago and Norton put up a hassle for the rebate because it was purchased online. I had to get Newegg involved and finally got the rebate.
This also includes a key for Winzip 17.

Get 100 free MP3s from SXSW 2013

As part of its SXSW: Live from Austin series, NPR is offering The Austin 100 -- a collection of 100 songs by 100 artists, all in MP3 format, all absolutely free.

And I mean really and truly free: There's nothing to register for, no form to complete, and not a single Facebook or Twitter sharing requirement.

Just scroll down a bit until you see the Download the Music box on the left, then right-click the Zip file to download the entire batch of songs. You can also scroll down a bit further and download individual tracks if you prefer.

These are largely indie acts, of course, but you might recognize a few of the names: The Polyphonic Spree, Nick Cave, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, for example. And don't forget that plenty of former unknowns made big splashes at SXSW, including Arctic Monkeys, Fleet Foxes, and Foster the People.

Before you order, you may want to read the User feedback. Just on the 64bit Full Version there are 31 pages of comments. Some are positive, but most are not so favorable. But read for yourself.
Here are some that I compiled that are less favorable (which is the majority of the comments).
Good OS for people with very little experience with computers. If you don't understand computers, and don't want to understand computers, this will work for you.
Windows 8? What I was looking for: A solid OS that was simple and easy to use. It would allow me to access my files without trouble and would run games just fine. What happened: None of that. Windows 8 treats you like an idiot child. You have to pay a 3rd party for the start bar. A great tradition that windows has always had available you now have to pay for. Microsoft failed so vastly. There are all sorts of bugs that they aren't fixing. The sleep mode is not effective, just a poorly run OS.
Pros: "Metro" is for tablets/phone and teenagers. Switching to desktop and using classic shell makes this version of windows tolerable. I actually could live with the desktop version of 8 with the classic shell add on...but the weirdness of 8 still pops up from time to time.
Cons: There is no need for anyone using a desktop to upgrade from Windows 7, none. The Metro interface is horrid.
Other Thoughts: I ran Windows 8 Pro for two months and went back to version 7 Pro on both our home desktops. Will wait to see what Balmer decides on the next "version" and perhaps I will reload 8 if they fix it. I love Windows 7 and see no need to leave it right's going to be supported until 2020 at least. Save your dollars on version 8 for now.
Pros: Sad to say none
Cons: No start menu to begin with, and then it is all down hill from there. Way to go Microsoft, you did it again. Did not think it was possible to get worse than Vista. Really regret buying it, just ordered Windows 7 Pro so I can use my 32 Gig of ram, other wise I could have use my Win 7 home premium instead but it is capped at 16 Gig of ram.
Really tired of companies piecing things out in increments. Just make a software that works for all users and be done with it you greedy dirt bags! I better quit typing now, before I really say what I am thinking.
Other Thoughts: I have no more thoughts left. Microsoft drove them all out! :-(
Pros: reminds me of windows millennium and that wallways makes me that always make me laugh allot.
Cons: I paid top $ for a Notebook and got a OS that should be on a mobile device !. Well I returnd the unit the very next day.
Other Thoughts: The only good feeling I got out Win 8 was bring it back for a refund.
Pros: Runs faster than xp on old single core machines.
Cons: Might be OK on small hand held devices but is totally a PITA on desktops and laptops.I can't believe that most new computers are shipped with this mess.
Pros: You can stick with Windows 7
Cons: Very un-informative navigation and incompatible with many programs for Windows 7 and below. Grand Theft Auto IV will not work on this OS. The fast boot is bugged not loading my BD drive as well.
Other Thoughts: Stick with Windows 7
Pros: Since I'm not using it on a tablet pc, but a desktop, I see no "pros" to this O.S.
Cons: Start up screen. I don't want "apps." E-mail will not work with my POP3 e-mail account. Can't find anything, easily. Intel's SSD toolbox has problems with it, there goes the expensive SSD drive I bought for my new system.
Other Thoughts: I thought Windows Me was bad (remember that one), but 8 is a new low. It might work great for a tablet PC, but some of us still work and play on desktops. They should have called this Windows Tablet, and kept it separate from desktop Windows 7. Burned again, by Microsoft.
As a software developer I *have* to support this poor excuse for an OS. This is worse than the Vista fiasco. I avoid using Wait (W8) as much as I can, other than for testing. I've programmed for *every* version of Windows since 2.11 so I know the product.

Pros: none that I can see so far. Came installed on a new laptop we just bought. Another pro, is you can always reformat your drive and install Windows 7
Cons: Want to see what's in your hard drive? Too bad. Want to operate from a start menu? Too bad. Want to downgrade to Windows 7 with the same license? Too bad. That's what this OS is. Too Bad.
Other Thoughts: If I wanted to use Windows Phone, I'd buy a Windows phone. Since I have no desire to own a Windows phone, because they suck, it's terribad. It's bdong (Kung Pao - Enter the Fist reference). There really needs to be a new word to describe how bad this is.

That's a good deal. The 4K write IOPS are a bit low, but other than that it is probably very good.

That looks like a good price. I wonder though why Newegg has discontinued selling this drive.

Ah! It's a SATA 2 drive. The WD1002FAEX is SATA 3.
