    I have not heard of any deals on windows 8 recently, so I bought a DELL OEM windows 7 pro for $69 for my new carpc from Missionsofts.com last month. Microsoft has gotten quite proud of windows 8 lately, and that reflects in the price.

    Yes I've got a super free win 7 disc that I usually use..but this cap screen is just begging for somthing a little more...fluid.
    Did you end up fitting that 8' screen rray?

    Yes, I have the 8" screen in the camaro dash kit, just need to figure out how I want to mount the buttons. The screen itself takes up all the space that normally have screen, buttons, usb slot, and a cd slot, so it's full of just screen now. I guess I need to start taking pictures of my progress and start a new worklog.

    Windows 8 Pro student version has been coming on sale for $69 ($180 off) regularly this summer at Staples here in Canada. It's on this week but it's in store only and you need student ID to buy it and one per customer. Check around you may find similar deals elsewhere if you know someone that has ID for it.

    Newegg and Tigerdirect have had deals on it(I think Windows 8 was somewhere around 70-80 the other day)

    you can also try to find someone who bought a new laptop and hates win8 , my neighbor bought a new laptop, and put win 7 on it , I aksed if I could use his license key for win 8 since he has no desire to use win8.

    Thats the cheapest legal way to get a license code.

    I find the value for money is a technet subscription. 199 gets you keys for all flavours of windows and office and more. It has been discontinued as of aug 31, 2013 but you can active that subscription before the end of sept 2013 good for 1 year or end of service for technet sept 30 2014. Your keys are good forever and most versions give you 3 keys. Not sure if the 199 one has the ultimate versions. I went with the 349 package as it included all the server's and server apps. Just a thought SNO
