Just got an email from PC Authority regarding the pricing for Windows 7.
Looks like we get screwed here once again, we don't get the special launch cost of $50 for an upgrade here unlike the US, Canada and almost every other civilized country (except in europe, they have to wait a bit longer cos IE8 must be stripped from their versions).
Here is the pricing for Australia.
* Home Premium $199
* Professional $399
* Ultimate $429
Full Version pricing
* Home Premium $299
* Professional $449
* Ultimate $469
Windows 7 Upgrade Promotion
Thanks to a special Microsoft promotion, you can upgrade to Windows 7 for free (not incl. shipping would be my guess).
You can only claim this if you buy a computer between now and 31 January 2010.
You can redeem this offer from October 22 through to February 28, 2010.
Only certain PC's are eligible for this promotion though so if you are looking at buying one make sure you confirm with the store in writing that you are eligible so that if you find at a later date you aren't you can hit the store up for the retail copy.
