windows-7-box-artWe all know that Microsoft will start selling Windows 7  from October 22nd, but we didn’t had any confirmations on what the pricing will be like.

Early rumours said that Microsoft will offer free upgrade to Windows 7 for Vista users, but that was all proved wrong with the latest pricing announced.

When compared with the retail pricing from what Windows Vista started, there is a much notable difference in them. I have given the prices of Windows 7 upgrade and retail versions below, where you can judge yourself whether Windows 7 is really worth buying right now or you should wait for the first price drop from Microsoft.

Upgrade Version Prices

  • Windows 7 Home Premium: $119.99
  • Windows 7 Professional: $199.99
  • Windows 7 Ultimate: $219.99

Retail Version Prices

  • Windows 7 Home Premium: $199.99
  • Windows 7 Professional: $299.99
  • Windows 7 Ultimate: $319.99

If you’re wondering what is Windows 7 Professional, it is, what is currently called Business edition for Windows Vista.
