Amazon Posts Vista Prices, Claims Jan. 30 Delivery

Upgrade prices for Vista will range from $99.95 for a Home Basic version to $259 for Ultimate. Amazon says it got the prices from Microsoft.

Amazon.com has posted pre-order prices for Windows Vista that also claim the new operating system will be available on Jan. 30, 2007. Tuesday, the e-tailer confirmed that it got the prices from Microsoft Corp. price sheets, but said that the delivery date was its own estimate "based on conversations with both Microsoft and others."

Analysts said that the date was probably on the money.

According to Amazon, the retail versions of Windows Vista will ship the second-to-last day of January, with prices set to range from $99.95 for the Home Basic upgrade to $399 for the full version of Ultimate. As of mid-day Tuesday, the pre-order listings remained viewable on Amazon.

Amazon staked Vista's retail versions at:

-- Windows Vista Home Basic: $99.95 (upgrade), $199 (full version) -- Windows Vista Home Premium: $159 (upgrade), $239 (full version) -- Windows Vista Business: $199 (upgrade), $299 (full version) -- Windows Vista Ultimate: $259 (upgrade), $399 (full version)
