American Reseller Leaks Windows 10 Release Date, Pricing In Question
Speculations regarding the Windows 10 release date has come to an end with a reseller releasing the price and availability date of Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Professional. According to Newegg.com, the release date is August 31, and the company has also started taking pre-orders.
Microsoft has made all effort to keep the Windows 10 prices and release date under wraps. If the dates provided by the website are real, the updated version of Windows will arrive before the summer ends, as promised by Microsoft. However, Microsoft refused to comment on the dates.
As far as pricing is concerned, there are still some doubts. Microsoft had earlier announced that Windows 10 will be given out as a free update to users with Windows 8.1 and 7. However, this is applicable for users who qualify under the criteria mentioned by the company. It is still not known when the qualified users will get the Windows 10 update.
The website suggests that Windows 10 Professional will cost $149 and the Home edition will cost $109. According to a ZDNet report, these prices are just $10 more than the prices that were charged for Windows 8 Pro and Windows 8 when they were launched.
According to a previous report from ZDNet, Windows 10 is supposed to be released at the end of July, as said by AMD president Lisa Su.
Microsoft has plans to get the updated version of Windows installed in more than 1 billion computers in less than three years. According to CNet, the market of PC’s has gone anemic in the last few quarters and this new update has the potential to make a change.
Windows 7 was the last successful version of Windows after Windows XP ruled the market for years. Windows 8 was widely rejected by users. Microsoft has gone back to basics with Windows 7 with an easy-to-use and stylish interface.
