Windows 10 prices revealed

While Microsoft is offering free Windows 10 upgrades to some customers, those who do not qualify or don’t redeem their upgrades in time will have to pay for the new operating system.

According to Forbes and Cnet, Microsoft will sell Windows 10 for $119, and Windows 10 Pro for $199. An upgrade from Windows 10 to Windows 10 Pro will cost $99.

US Dollar prices exclude taxes, such as VAT.

These are the same prices Microsoft is charging for Windows 8.1 today, suggesting that the current South African pricing for Windows will apply to Windows 10.

In South Africa, Microsoft has priced Windows 8.1 as follows (all prices include VAT):

  • Windows 8.1: R1,540
  • Windows 8.1 Pro: R2,630
  • Windows 8.1 Pro Student Offer: R480

Windows 10 is set to launch on 29 July 2015, and users of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 will be able to redeem a free upgrade to the new version of the operating system during the first year after the launch.
