We stumbled on a deal posted on the Microsoft Store: Microsoft is now offering a free Seagate FreeAgent Go Portable 500 GB Hard Drive when you buy Windows 7 professional upgrade! You’ll have the option to download, download+backup or have them ship the Windows 7 Upgrade to you. Your total should be $199.99 for the bundle.
This is a limited time offer valid only on eligible products and while supplies last. Shipping available to the 50 United States and D.C. No APO/FPO addresses, PO Boxes, or U.S. Territories. Limit one (1) per customer. Not valid on previous orders, cannot be transferred, redeemed for cash, or combined with any other offer or promotion. And the deal is not good at any retail stores, including Microsoft’s own retail stores.
For those interested, the dimensions are 3.15 x 5.12 x 0.49 inches (80.01 x 130.04 x 12.44 mm), the weight is 0.35 pounds (158.75 g), and the transfer rate goes up to 480Mbps.
The cost of the hard drive separately on Amazon is $98.95, and You can get the FULL (not upgrade) Win 7 Pro at Tigerdirect for $120 now. So this deal is not a great deal, but it is slightly cheaper if you were already shopping for a Windows 7 upgrade (includes both 33-bit and 64-bit versions).
