While browsing around on Microsoft.com we stumbled on a deal posted on the Microsoft Store. If you buy a copy of Windows 7 Professional Upgrade, which costs $200, Microsoft will throw in a portable black Seagate FreeAgent Go 500GB hard drive. For those interested, the dimensions are 3.15 x 5.12 x 0.49 inches (80.01 x 130.04 x 12.44 mm), the weight is 0.35 pounds (158.75 g), and the transfer rate goes up to 480Mbps.

Separately, the Microsoft Store is offering a $150 discount on select PCs to those who purchase the $150 Windows 7 Family Pack. The pack lets you upgrade three PCs to Windows 7 Home Premium, but Microsoft only makes it available for limited amounts of time.

Microsoft also announced today that the Windows 7 Family Pack is now available (or will be in the coming weeks) in 46 countries: Australia, Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Korea, Kuwait, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Oman, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, UK, Ukraine, and the United Arab Emirates.
