2012e academic?

Hi,

 

I was curious as to whether there had been any real changes in the street pricing of WS2012e so I did a quick search and found several sites selling 'Retail Box' versions with 'Academic' licensing.  Pricing was in the $250 range.  Some sort of scam?

Did you check to see if those sites require a .EDU email address in order to make the purchase? That has been my past experience with these offers.

Hello ikon,

 

I did not try to buy as it seemed too good to be true.  Bet you are right about the .EDU email requirement.

 

I am not getting a ton of use out of my Tech Net subscription and I am considering not renewing this year.  I am a bit torn between 2012E and WHS2011.  I have a license for WHS, but I just can't seem to justify a license for 2012E.  Of course, now that office is going to cost me $100 per year, the Tech Net subscription feels $100 cheaper :blink:.
