"Students also should have a closer look at the price tag as student versions of Vista are offered for steep discounts. For example, the $160 Vista Premium upgrade is available for about $85 and the $400 Vista Ultimate (full version) sells for around $210."
Yea we get xp free as well. although i have a feeling it was taken somewhere in tuition fees haha. unfortunately no vista. I am going with the OEM ultimate anyway (full version for only 200). going to wait till march though when the new DX10 cards come out and hopefully dx10 games fallow
Yeah the university I go to is just a small place. That and the people that run this place are a bunch of tight a$$es. But I am in majoring in a computer area so the department head trys to helps us out with more of a discount than regular students. I want to say ultimate is going to be around 100 to 150 for me, but im not getting it untill it becomes the main stream and very stable. I didnt get XP untill a few months after SP2
You can get this price if you're a student, parent, teacher, etc. I believe this is separate from what Microsoft charges educational institutions. I haven't seen any similar offers for other versions of Vista.
yeah... but all the stuff i got from that are downloaded .iso Though i think the CD media is available from microsoft for $13 or possibly they may have copies at the CS department available if you cant download it or something... either way its not for resale.... not that that has stopped anyone.
Hmm...very designing offer. Thanks for the info, wstcoaster07.
Actually, The Sam"s club near my house sells the regular FULL version i.e. NOT STUDENT VERSION, for $204 everyday. I suggest just go buy it from them. It is called the upgrade version, but during the installation it asked you if you just want to do a clean install. That what i chose and it worked great.
