OEM Prices
 
Windows 7 BoxesAmerican retailer - newegg.com has listed prices of OEM copies of Microsoft's upcoming Windows 7 operating system. The pricing reveals savings of over 50%, with Home Premium OEM being only $99.99, instead of $199.99. Professional OEM is only $134.99, a huge difference to the $299.99 for the retail version. Finally, the OEM version of Windows 7 Ultimate is priced at $174.99, down from the $319.99 of the full retail version. This pricing should translate similarly into prices of around £65 for Home Premium, £95 for Professional and £125 for ultimate.
 
This could be the last chance to get a cheap copy of the software, if you have missed the previous pre order offers and are not eligable for the student discount. There is a downside though, OEM software has limited technical support and can only be installed on one computer, unlike it's retail counterparts.
