Windows 7 Upgrade Price Drops by 35-percent, Microsoft Eying More Buys

April 5, 2010, By Radimir Bobev

Microsoft are surely enjoying a stable popularity on the computer market, with their OS being pre-installed on the majority of computers sold right now. However, with so many different versions of Windows 7, it’s quite easy to buy a computer that comes with one you don’t find suitable – such as Windows 7 Starter, which is very limited in functionality.

As of now, upgrading your Windows 7 to a more advanced version will cost about 35% less for most types of upgrades, which should make it a much more attractive choice for those looking to improve what they have.

Upgrading Windows 7 Starter to Windows 7 Home Premium, for example, will now cost you just under $50, whereas it previously used to cost $80. Likewise, upgrading from Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional will now set you back $80, as opposed to the previous price of $90.

The new prices should make a noticeable difference in the ease of changing your Windows installation, as this was a commonly reported problem by some users.
