Windows 7 pricing, upgrade options and pre-order info was unveiled today via Microsoft’s Windows Blog.
Windows 7 Upgrade Pricing (in USD)
- Windows 7 Home Premium (Upgrade): $119.99
- Windows 7 Professional (Upgrade): $199.99
- Windows 7 Ultimate (Upgrade): $219.99
Windows 7 Full Version Pricing (in USD)

Windows 7 Upgrade Program will begin June 26, 2009 (tomorrow!). So if anyone buys a desktop or laptop with Windows Vista Premium, Business or Ultimate on it, they will receive an upgrade voucher to the corresponding version of Windows 7 “at little or no cost.”
And finally, special limited time and quantity pre-orders for Windows 7 will begin tomorrow! You will be able to place pre-orders (participating stores to be determined) for Windows 7 Home Premium and Professional for $49.99 USD & $99.99 USD respectively. I’ll update Canadian stores via Twitter tomorrow.
Pre-orders will end on July 11, 2009, but I doubt it’ll last until then if Microsoft’s “limited quantities” are to be believed.
