Microsoft Drops Windows Vista Prices
Vista Ultimate, which pretty much includes all Vista features (including Aero and Windows Media Center) will drop from $399 to $319 for the full version and $220 for the upgrade, from $299. The Home Premium upgrade will drop to $129 from $159. The price cut will apply globally, but prices will vary from region to region.
The price cut only applies to retail boxed version of the product however, so it'll only benefit those who are upgrading old computers, many of which, as Engadget points out, aren't even fast enough to run Vista properly. Will this help push Vista out the door any faster? Probably not, but it's still nice to see Microsoft scale back some of its absurd prices.
