Retailers Leak Windows 7 Family Pack
Fadfusion.com on Friday listed something called "W7 Family Pack - Home Prem Upg" on its site for $138.99. According to the site, that's an $11 discount from the $149.99 MSRP. The software will reportedly let users upgrade as many as three PCs in a single household to Windows 7 Home Premium.
Other sites reportedly had the same item selling for around the same price, and all had the same part number (GFC-00236) and UPC code (882224898249) listed. That tends to lend credence to this being the real deal rather than some error.
Now here's something annoying: from now until July 11th, U.S. buyers get special pricing: $49.99 for a Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade and $99.99 for a Windows 7 Professional upgrade.
Not such a great deal for Home Premium after all when you can get a Family Pack for the same price, right? Naturally that only affect those with multiple PCs, but I expect many HH readers to fall into that category. Now the question arises: when will Microsoft announce the Family Pack? July 12th?
