Christmas Geek Present Ideas

So Christmas and the winter holiday season is nearly upon us - so you will all soon be looking out for what you can get your friends and family to celebrate.

Fortunately there are some great value deals to be had at the moment that would make great presents, and won’t break the bank!!

First of all, if you’re a student, you can get Windows 7 at fantastically reasonable prices - ideal for family members who you can join in the fun with. If you’re in the US you can get it on this site](http://www.win741.com/), otherwise you can get it from here for the UK. Read about all the [benefits of Windows 7 here (#930).
