Computerworld – A leaked memo from Best Buy claims that the retail chain will pre-sell Windows 7 upgrades for as little as $49.99 starting June 26, a technology enthusiast site reported today.
On Friday morning, Engadget posted an image of what it said was an internal Best Buy memo that outlined the company’s plans for Windows 7, which Microsoft has announced will go on sale starting on Oct. 22.
The memo, which dubbed Windows 7 as more than just a “Vista that works” operating system, said that Best Buy would kick off pre-sales of Windows 7 Home Premium and Windows 7 Professional for $49.99 and $99.99, respectively, beginning June 26. The promotional prices will be good through July 11, the memo added.
