Vista Pricing Revealed

Online retailer Amazon.com has begun taking preorders for various

Windows Vista versions, which will be available January 30, 2007,

according to Amazon.com. Not surprisingly, the prices that Amazon.com

lists for Vista are quite similar to the roughly equivalent Windows XP


According to Amazon.com, the prices for Vista are as follows:

Vista Home Basic: $199.00

Vista Home Basic Upgrade: $99.95

Vista Home Basic Upgrade (Additional License Only): $89.95

Vista Home Premium: $239.00

Vista Home Premium Upgrade: $159.00 :( [How much is that in Australian dollars ..]

Vista Home Premium Upgrade (Additional License Only): $143.00

Vista Business: $299.00

Vista Business Upgrade: $199.00

Vista Business Upgrade (Additional License Only): $179.00

Vista Ultimate: $399.00

Vista Ultimate Upgrade: $259.00

Vista Ultimate Upgrade (Additional License Only): $233.00

Although not every Vista version correlates exactly with an XP

version, the pricing is in line with XP pricing. For example, XP Home

costs $189.00, compared with $199.99 for Vista Home Basic, and the XP

Home Upgrade costs $89.97, only two cents more than the Vista Home

Basic Upgrade. Upsells won't be particularly expensive either: Prices

for the much more capable Vista Home Premium are just $40 to $60

higher than those of Vista Home Basic.

Amazon.com doesn't yet show the box art that Microsoft will use for

its Vista retail versions. Earlier this week, Microsoft Canada also

slipped with a bit of Vista pricing information: The company's Web

site briefly reported that Vista Ultimate would cost $450 in Canadian
