    For students in the US and Canada, there are cheap Win 7 Prof available for those with a US or Canadian university email address… For US Students it’s $29.99 (around Php 1500) while Canadian Students can get it for $39.99 (around Php 1700)… They also have promos for retail employees (those who sell MS products) and if they get the free MS online training, Windows 7 ultimate NFR (Not for Resale) versions for $10 (php 500)

    I wonder if they have any similar promos in the Philippines…

  • thanks for mentioning those promos. i’ll bring them up in tomorrow’s launch.

    It’s so much cheaper to get it from abroad than to buy Home Premium here for the *special discounted* price of 7.7k.

    I was waiting for the commercial release for a long time but after seeing how much more expensive the local prices are – fuck that, pirated na lang.

  • hahaha. actually it went down to 7k for the home premium over the weekend sa villman.

    i’m still waiting for a family pack promo for my 3 pc’s.

    you can also ask someone from a school who’s a member of MSDNAA to buy one for you at a discounted price.

  • The sale of fake Gucci shoes is now a common event. But, the online shopping platform adds a fresh layer of deception. Individuals buying the fashionable shoes do not understand that the products they are buying are fake.

    Hi this is the kind of website I’m very interested with, with updates, promos, news, stores where to find and buy those stuffs. You must take into consideration that to minimize counterfeit or pirated softwares, it is best for companies like Microsoft to put blogs like this – updated and reachable – every now and then. Good Work folks. Keep it up!!!
