Did Best Buy just leak the Windows 7 price? (Probably not, no.)


So there’s this leaked Best Buy memo that shows the store that I’ll never visit again selling Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrades for $49.99 and Windows 7 Professional Upgrades for $99.99. Does that mean that Microsoft will sell said Windows 7 upgrades for said prices across the boards? Eh, not really. I seem to recall Best Buy selling Vista upgrades for one price, then, when Vista actually comes out, it was going for a different price.

Still, I suppose if you’re in the market for Windows 7, and you should be if you’re a Windows guy, then I guess this is promising news.

Specific to Best Buy, their deal is that if you buy a qualifying PC on or after June 26, they’ll throw in a few copy of Windows 7 when it rolls around.

But what does this have to do with the Palm Pre?
