Vista OEM Pricing Released
With the consumer launch of Vista only a few days away, we're finally learning more about OEM pricing for the newest version of Windows. Here is a quick list of these prices:
- Vista Home Basic $99 (retail version: $199)
- Vista Home Premium: $119 (retail version: $239)
- Vista Business: $149 (retail version: $299)
- Vista Ultimate $199 (retail version: $399)
Insane discounts? It's a mix, really. Vista Home Basic and Vista Home Premium OEM are priced the same as the retail upgrade editions, meaning that your average do-it-yourself system builder isn't going to save much with an OEM purchase provided he has an old copy of Windows laying around to validate the upgrade.
