Buy Windows 7 For Less Through Microsoft Technet Direct

Users can download all the versions of Microsoft Windows 7 operating system, plus more than 200 other Microsoft applications from Technet Direct, which Microsoft describes as the essential resource for the IT professional but doesn't carry any formal form of restrictions.

This will bring the price of the cost of the one year subscription to £204.52 including VAT (the renewal cost currently stands at £192).
