Windows 7 Pricing And Upgrade Details Announced

The Windows Blog has posted details about Windows 7 pricing and upgrades. Here are the highlights:

  • If you buy a PC starting Friday, June 26th, it should be covered under a free upgrade plan. Unless you happen to buy a PC with Vista Basic. Then you’re out of luck.
  • If you already own a PC running XP or Vista, you’ll will be able to pre-order the upgrade package at around half the price that they’ll eventually sell for. This too starts on the 26th, but this offer is only available until July 11th.

Okay now the pricing:

  • Windows 7 Home Premium: $119 USD for the upgrade or $199 for the full version
  • Windows 7 Professional: $199 USD for the upgrade or $299 for the full version
  • Windows 7 Ultimate: $219 USD for the upgrade or $319 for the full version

All things considered, this is very aggressive pricing. Clearly Microsoft really wants you to upgrade to Windows 7 so that you’ll forget that Vista even existed.

What do you think of this? Leave a comment and share your wisdom.
