Do you think Microsoft Windows 7 Family Pack price is too high? For us, the answer is not really. That’s our personal evaluation of the prices Microsoft announced a few months ago. The Family Pack version of Windows 7 is priced at $149.95 when it was first introduced to the public. In fact, MS inadvertently confirmed that the price and availability of Windows 7 family pack upgrade DVD ROM by referencing it in the licensing terms of a test version of Windows 7 RC2 that leaked onto the Internet.
The family pack priced at $149.95 sold on Amazon will allow users to upgrade up to three desktop or notebook computers to the Home Premium edition of Windows 7 from Windows XP or Windows Vista. To clarify further, this family pack is simply an upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7 Home Premium and/or from Windows Vista to Windows 7 Home Premium. We hope that’s clear to everyone.

The software developer also announced the Upgrade Anytime feature which involves the changing of product codes from one “flavor” of the operating system to the other which can be done in 10 minutes or less, while Vista users will be required to use an Upgrade Now Disk to be able to fully upgrade to the new Windows 7 operating system which can be bought online or on retail stores practically everywhere on the planet.
Here are some of the Windows 7 upgrade prices:
- Windows 7 Starter to Windows 7 Home Premium will cost $79.99
- Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional will cost $89.99
- Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Ultimate will cost $139.99
The price seem very high but compared to Windows Vista, Windows 7 upgrade still costs a little less. Microsoft noted in some of its communications that the Windows 7 family pack is available on a “while supplies last” basis, maybe a part of the marketing pitch to entice more consumers to buy their new product.
