Default Looking for a bargain in purchasing Windows 7

Hi guys,
I am in the market to purchase a legit copy of Windows 7. I do qualify for academic price but haven't been able to find a decent price on Windows 7. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

$92.65 would be a great price. I was quoted $200, academic price no less.

Ouch... Yeah, just pick it up from Amazon (even qualifies for free Prime shipping). NewEgg also has the systembuilder/OEM copies for a similar price.

If you pay more than $100 for windows you over payed.

OP, you say you're qualified for student pricing; does your school participate in DreamSpark? If it does you can get Windows free.
