How much extra will people people pay to avoid Vista? Dell has pushed the price of avoiding Vista up to $150.
More and more. In June, Dell (DELL) started charging customers an extra $20 to $50 for a downgrade to Windows XP. By October, Dell's XP premium was up to $100. We checked in on Dell's site today, and the retailer is now charging a whopping $150 for what Microsoft (MSFT) says is outdated software.
Here you go:
Note: If you go for the higher-end Inspiron 530s systems you can get XP for $120!
Pay $150 extra to have XP installed on a $279 machine? No way! I really have a hard time believing that there are people who are that attached to XP.
