Windows 7 Pro Upgrade (STUDENT EMAIL REQUIRED!) - $30
Posted 02 April 2011 - 05:34 AM
You need a .edu email address... if your school uses a third party email client (like Gmail), then your school needs to be in the pre-approved list (see website). You also need Windows XP or Vista.
This was available $30 a year or two ago but then they bumped it up to $70 or something. It's back down to $30 but no idea for how long.

It has the option for the 64bit.

Is this only for a download or will I get a physical copy?
When I did it last summer you could get a physical copy (which I did) but you had to pay extra. I forget how much it was, like $10-15 I think.
I was glad I got it as I had got it for my girlfriend's desktop then, but was able to upgrade my work laptop with it recently as well (was having problems from viruses etc. so it was time to do a restore).

I'm guessing this is a no, but can you use the upgrade on more than 1 computer?
I bought it last fall in the same $30 deal and used it on my desktop then, and then on my work laptop a couple weeks ago. Both activated without any issues.

Will this work as a fresh install, or only upgrade? I want to install on my MacBook using bootcamp and dual boot each OS.
Do a fresh install, then reinstall again as an upgrade. The Product Key will work on the 2nd install. I did it and it worked flawlessly.

I literally bought this a week ago for 70. Now I'm just pissed.... (sigh)
If you call them, they might give you credit back. Microsoft has a history of returning money to users. Just be honest with them and explain it to them.
