Cheaper Windows 7 License with Family Pack

We all know that Microsoft Windows licenses are very expensive. If you go to Microsoft store, you can see that the price for Windows Home Premium full version is US$199.99 per license. The upgrade version wouldn’t be cheap either, it will cost you US$119.99 per license.

Most of computer users will have at least 2 computers, one PC and one Notebooks. If you have family, big chances you have more than 2 computers. If you buy the retail price of Windows 7 that would cost you more than US$ 200 just for the upgrade license. But there is a cheaper deal from Microsoft if you can wait a bit more. Microsoft will run a special offer beginning 22 October 2009 called “Windows 7 Family Pack”. The Windows 7 Family Pack will allow you to install up to 3 Windows 7 Home premium licenses for US$ 149.99! That is a HUGE saving for you.

Here is the quote from Windows Team Blog:

Today, most homes have more than one PC in them. When you run Windows 7 on more than one PC on a home network, you can do more with features like HomeGroup. HomeGroup allows people to connect to PCs on their network and share files, music and photos with the whole family – easily. The Windows 7 Family Pack is an easy and affordable way to get all your PCs in your household running Windows 7 through licensing to install Windows 7 Home Premium on up to 3 PCs.

The Windows 7 Family Pack will be available starting on October 22nd until supplies last here in the US and other select markets. In the US, the price for the Windows 7 Family Pack will be $149.99 for 3 Windows 7 Home Premium licenses. That’s a savings of more than $200 for three licenses. This is a great value and we’re excited to be able to offer it to customers.
