Microsoft officials may not be ready to share the date of the Vista-to-Windows 7 upgrade program they preannounced this week. But Best Buy is.
Customers who buy Vista PCs between June 26 and the Windows 7 launch day (October 22) will get a free upgrade copy of Windows 7, according to the memo.
But wait: There's more. Starting June 26 there also will be a presell program kicking off at Best Buy, via which Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade copies can be ordered for $49.95 and Windows 7 Professional Upgrade copies for $99.99. (Note: These are upgrade license prices, not the price for a brand-new retail version of Windows 7. Microsoft still hasn't released officially any Windows 7 price lists. )
Microsoft also confirmed the company is taking pre-orders from its volume licensees for WIndows 7, but wouldn't confirm that they are allegedly charging them $77 per copy for their Windows 7 upgrades.
What do you think of these upgrade prices? Cheap enough to entice you to move to Windows 7?
