Is this website legit for buying Windows 7 Home retail?

by windchaser90 / December 6, 2012 1:48 AM PST

I've been googling around trying to find where it's cheapest to buy Windows 7 Home retail and I found this website called Discount Mountain where it was selling for around $140. I wanted to know if this website was legit and if anyone's bought from it before. I've never heard of it before myself so I have no clue on it. It's selling windows 7 for the cheapest and if it is legit I'm definitely going to buy from it.

No big savings I see.

I see is at 167.25 today so no big savings.

I rarely see such a site that doesn't scream scam or run away but they have a physical address noted in their page which is rare to never happens for scam sites.

I have no reason to buy there given it's not much more at newegg or amazon.

The price keeps kinda bouncing on the website but it's usually around $140 and I think $20 less is a great saving >.>. Where ever I can get it the cheapest I'm trying for, I really need to save my money. If I didn't need this for my new computer I'd say forget it lol.

if it comes bundled with the PC. Or do you build one yourself? Might be more expensive taken all together.

Why didn't you get the OEM Builders Version and ignore the fine print?
