Student Computer Software

Whether you are on scholarship or working part-time to pay for your studies, counting your pennies during your student years is necessary for your survival. Students are often required to have the most upgraded computers and computer software if they want to stay abreast with assignments and research.

You should therefore make it a priority to find some awesome discounted computer software if you want to excel and save a few bucks at the same time.

For those of you who have a load of expenses other than college fees, saving with discount OEM software is ideal. This computer software is efficient, dependable and the same great quality found in the ones sold at your local retail stores. In case you did not know, OEM means ‘Original Equipment Manufacturer’ but many just refer to it as gray market software.

You may be wondering why discount OEM software is so much cheaper? Well, here are the reasons:    * Software merchants usually manufacturer computer software in two versions according to the distribution channel the goods are intended for.    * These channels are the retailers, who sell the computer software to the public, which includes students like you.    * The other channel operates via OEM and this is sold to systems manufacturers and resellers.

What many people don’t realize is that the two versions are identical. The main difference is the price of the retail product which is considerably higher, and the retail packaging, which is fancier. As a student, all that matters is having the most updated basic software, so buying a product with all the frills is unnecessary.

With the awesome introduction of discount student computer software, you don’t need to pay for frills. Retail software is packaged much fancier and comes complete with driver CDs, software CDs and installation manuals. The OEM distribution channel supplies well-known manufacturers such as Dell and HP.

OEM products are normally packaged in bulk and this also explains the lower cost. However, before you buy OEM software, you should know that it does not come with driver CDs and instruction manuals. Also, sometimes the OEM manufacturer’s license may be smaller, non-existent or completely different to the retail warranty.

That being said, discount OEM software includes complete versions of the same software packages sold by retailers. Just like their retail counterparts, they are sold complete with Certificates of Authenticity, product key coding and installation discs. The only downside is that you may not be able to receive any free technical support from the manufacturer.

Locating a discount software reseller online is easy. Be sure to look for certain criteria when searching for one online though. Good credentials for a great discount software reseller are:    * A good reputation    * Reliable customer support as well as    * Incentive programs for students.

In case you were wondering about the difference between a reseller and a distributor, here they are:

* Distributor is just another word for retailer. They sell on a larger, most expensive scale to the general public, including students like you.    * Resellers on the other hand, sell to a more specialized group on a smaller scale. For instance, they sell wholesale OEM products to manufacturers like Dell or HP or to individuals who are aware of their deals on products.

So if you are into brand names and want to save with OEM products, then you should look for Microsoft, Adobe and Symantec discount software as it will definitely be worth your while.
