Larry P. from PEX sent TP this question via private message earlier:
"TP, where can I buy original Microsoft Windows 7 CD installer in the Philippines once it comes out? And how much will Windows 7 cost? Thanks!"
Hi Larry! Thanks for the inquiry!
Windows 7 is yet to be launched in the Philippines this coming weekend but some retailers are already offering the OS to customers as early as now via their websites. You may purchase your original copy of Microsoft's new operating system at Microsoft's authorized retail partners in the country. Some of these include: PC Xpress, CBX, Octagon and Villman - among many others.
[Note: As of December 2009, Windows 7 is officially out in the Philippines]
For the full list of Microsoft's Official Partner Retailers in the Philippines (across the archipelago - including Cebu, Cagayan, Iloilo, Bacolod, Negros, Zambales, Bulacan, Baguio, etc.) complete with contact details and store locations, click HERE.
Here are the prevailing prices of the different Windows 7 Service Packs courtesy of Villman.com:
Windows 7 Starter - P 2,499
Windows 7 Home Basic - P 4,999
Windows 7 Professional - P 8,299
Windows 7 Ultimate should run for around P 11,000 to P 12,000 .
There you go. :) Have fun with your new OS.
