Is there any box bundles that would let me install on multiple computers, looking at 3-10computers here. Downloading is not an option. Thanks guys.

Buy a Technet Plus Single User subscription for $599 USD. 10 keys for every edition of Windows 7 (plus a whole bunch of other Microsoft software). Overall, TPSU should be cheaper than buying individual boxed copies of the OS, and that subscription level will ship product DVD's to you. Make sure that you pick the right one though, as the Technet Plus Direct subscription is identical, but does not ship out product DVD's.

... and no, the product keys you get through Technet do not expire if your Technet subscription lapses. All that happens is you simply lose access to the keys, the downloads, and no more DVD's get sent to you until (or if) you renew.

Edit: Microsoft did originally offer a family pack for Windows 7 Home Premium which contained 3 Home Premium keys, but I don't believe it is available anymore.

Amazon.co.uk sell the 3-packs (full version only as far as I can see). They are a little bit cheaper than three separate copies, but it's not a huge saving.

You can always buy 1 oem copy then install to the other PC's w/o a cd key. you'll be given the option to buy a cd key online when you activate the other computers. I don't know what they charge though.

It's there to protect Microsoft's backside. The keys you get through Technet are retail keys (the same type you would get if you bought a copy in a store). Right now, I am permanently "evaluating" Windows 7 on 6 different systems.

Cool... thought they weren't selling those anymore. Or maybe I was thinking exclusively of the Family pack for Home Premium...
