Windows 7 Anytime Upgrade Prices Leaked

We saw earlier today more evidence that Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade Family Pack, which should include three licenses, is real and could cost just $20 to $30 more than the Home Premium Upgrade with just one license.

Another piece of unofficial information dug up is possible pricing for the Anytime Upgrade retail SKUs. Ed Bott included in his recent ZDNet blog findings at online retailers who listed prices for several different Anything Upgrade packages, particularly those relating to Home Premium. The following come from Expercom, but has since removed the listings from its site.

UPG WINDOWS ANYTIME/W7 STARTER TO HOME PREMIUM UPGRADE
Microsoft - Model 4WC-00040 $81.95

UPG WINDOWS ANYTIME/W7 HOME PREMIUM TO PROFESSIONAL UPGRADE
Microsoft - Model 7KC-00040 $90.95

UPG WINDOWS ANYTIME/W7 HOME PRE TO ULTIMATE UPGRADE
Microsoft - Model 39C-00040 $137.95

There were other retailers that listed similar prices within $10 of the above.

Just like the Family Pack news from earlier today, all the prices are unofficial. What we can bank on, though, is that the Anytime Upgrade retail SKUs are real (we've even seen box shots), so it's only a matter of time before we learn more.

  • too high! what about $25, $25, $25 and a handwritten apology by bill gates never to release another product like bob.

  • I'm so confused by the zillion editions now. It just makes no sense whatsoever. There should only be two versions, Windows 7 and Windows 7 Server (multiple server versions differing only in max number of clients allowed is ok though). Upgrade versions for both too. That should be it. It should also be priced at about a maximum of $150.
    The same goes for Office. Office should only come in one flavour with all the apps and should be max $100.
