Tom Warren over at Neowin told me this morning about an excellent Windows 7 offer in the UK, where students will be able to get either Windows 7 Home Premium or Professional for just £30:
We are offering students the opportunity to buy Windows 7 for an amazing discounted price, £30 for either Windows 7 Home Premium or Windows 7 Professional.
You can take advantage of this offer from October 1st but you will need to be quick as it is for a limited time only and is only eligible to college and university students with a valid .EDU email address (an email address given by the college or university, for example: Suzanne@leeds.ac.uk ), a PC that is currently running a genuine copy of Windows Vista or Windows XP and can run Windows 7.
This offer will be available from 1st October so please check back then for details on how to take advantage of this great offer.
But Tom has some additional news of interest to those outside the US:
US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Korea and Mexico will also have similar offers but exact pricing varies by market.
Good stuff. Stay tuned.
UPDATE: Looks like the price is $29.99 in the US. Nice! Via twitter...
