19 May 2009   #11

These Prices to me are most unreasonable.

Windows 7 Starter $199,95
Windows 7 Home Premium $259,95
Windows 7 Professional $299,95
Windows 7 Ultimate $319,95
Windows 7 Enterprise Unknown
Pure speculation, here's another "source":

Win7 retail pricing rumor

here is what one site is posting as a RUMOR of the RETAIL pricing:

# Windows 7 Home Premium: $259
# Windows 7 Professional: $299
# Windows 7 Ultimate: $319

Windows 7 Pricing Starts at $200? Ehh...

Gizmodo - Windows 7 Pricing Starts at $200? Ehh... - Windows 7 pricing

You're probably going to end up seeing another few hundred "speculative"(note the emphasis on that) blogs and other "our word vs actual facts" articles floating around for a bit until MS announces the real world pricing once they have set those to what they will be.

When you actually see the prices listed at MS on the announcement page and/or on the order 7 today type page for retail or newegg or some other vendor for oem that's when they will be confirmed. Until then a number of blogs will simply end up leading people around in circles.

XP/win7 x86 build 7127

that pricing there would be out of this world ludacris... good luck on the migration i say. And how many licenses?

starter for $200?? how many kids in india/Russia/Mexico/US will have a legal copy on there pc unless bought pre-installed in the first year of existance. Dont take your sample from not a real world type scenario. 99% of ppl i talk to outside of the tech world have no clue of windows 7. You think mom and pop are going to shell out those prices just to check/send email to their son away at college? The best way for MS to promote/sell this OS would be thru school, giving students discounts. Or they could have even made a student edition given all the nonsense versions they have anyways. Sell the ultimate for $250 , starter $99 and Home for $175 and be done with it. I bet they wont have many problems with piracy as i believe at those prices ppl would pay for a new and FIXED OS (hopefully), especially if coming from Vista

Windows 7 64bit Ultimate

How much it cost for OEM version ? I would buy it cheaper than Retails.

OEM- tie to only one same pc, limited warranty 30 days, no tech support, cheaper.

RETAIL- can be install any another pc anytime unlimited I could be wrong, plus warranty, box, cheap manual, tech support and very expensive.

I heard that MS giving out free Win 7 if someone already bought pre-installed Vista before and after by the date of purchase.

Too late I sold my laptop with Vista in it.

What you seem to forget there is the pricing on full install version disks will automatically be higher priced then the lesser upgrade disks that become available once 7 is out. Ridiculous at $320-? As I was pointing out before the Vista Ultimate saw $399.99 when first out! Now you get a better version for less if there is any factual basis that comes out after all this for the article there.

And why did Vista and why would 7 see a much higher price tag then seen with older versions? With the retail deal you get two not one edition coming together that use the same product key. MS obviously is looking at the "2 for 1" factor when setting the prices.

There is one question to consider if you think that still too high. Why not pay someone to sit down and write a totally new version for you? Remember that person will likely a high priced software designer/engineer/programmer all wrapped up together at what $75-$100 an hour?

How many hours does it take to come up with a new working version of Windows anyways? Plus you still need someone for testing....? awww... sound familiar?

Actually despite mass production I don't think many would be able to calculate the work hours spent by all involved in all aspects of one version alone let alone different editions to boot. That doesn't include manufacturing and marketing costs added on as well. You have to look at it two ways there.

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi all
I think the "Update, OEM and Street Price" will be significantly less than these ones.

If these are the REAL prices it wont be long before THIS edition becomes universally available.
