Windows 8 Pro to launch for $70, price tag may jump to $199
Posted 21 August 2012 - 01:32 PM
One of the biggest questions is that of price. Microsoft has so far officially revealed only its promotional pricing, including a discounted upgrade offer for anyone buying a Windows 7 system between now and January 31 2013. We’ve known for some time that these customers will be able to upgrade to Windows 8 Pro for just $14.99 - and registration for this is now open - but non-promotional pricing has remained elusive.
The Verge may have the answer though. A “source familiar with Microsoft’s plans” revealed to Tom Warren that Windows 8 Pro will launch with a $69.99 promotional price tag, before the cost leaps to $199 once the offer period expires at the end of January. Windows 8 users will also be able to upgrade to Windows 8 Pro – although it seems that this option will, confusingly, only be available through retail stores – at a discounted price of $69.99 until January, after which the price will jump to $99.99.
As previously reported, users of existing Windows versions will be able to upgrade to Windows 8 Pro for $39.99 online, although this fee is for a download only, and will not include physical media.
