Windows 7 – Official Release, Prices and Packaging

windows_7Microsoft obviously wants to rid people’s minds of ‘Vista’ and all of its hang-ups and has just confirmed official release dates and prices whilst showing off the finalised Windows 7 packaging.

The base prices for the three main Windows 7 flavours, available in October, are as follows: Home Premium costs £149.99, Professional is £219.99 and Ultimate is £229.99.

Up until 31 December 2009 you can upgrade to Home Premium for £79.99, Professional for £189.99 or Ultimate for £199.99. A saving? yes. A bragain? Hmmmmmmmmmmm…. no

There is another way – a very special pre-order deal will get you Window 7 Home Premium for £49.99 or Professional for £99.99. Both offers start on July 15 and end on August 14, or until ‘stocks’ run out.

If, however, you don’t have a PC to install Windows 7 on to and need to get one pronto, don’t worry. If you buy a Windows Vista PC after June 26, you’ll get a free upgrade to Windows 7.

Windows 7 launches on October 22nd and you’ll be able marvel at it’s smaller and lighter packaging – apparently it’s had 37% weight reduction compared to the previous Windows.

Gosh! 😉
