We have been on a quest for the past two months to find firm pricing numbers on Window Vista that has lead us to Microsoft conferences, channel partner phone calls, and countless blogs. Ironically enough, the answer came today on Amazon.com.

After numerous delays that pushed the retail availability of Windows Vista back beyond Christmas, Microsoft has set a firm release date of January 30, 2007.


Amazon had a list of 16 different ways you could purchase Windows Vista, based mostly for the 6 different full and upgrade versions of the operating system. Here’s are the basic prices for those of you who plan on being in line when stores open on the 30th.

Windows Vista Home Basic (Closest to XP Home)
$199 Full Version / $99.95 Upgrade Version

Windows Vista Home Premium (Closest to XP Media Center)
$239 Full Version / $159 Upgrade Version

Windows Vista Business (Closest to XP Professional)
$299 Full Version /$199 Upgrade Version

Windows Vista Ultimate (The Whole Enchilada)
$399 Full Version / $259 Upgrade Version
