Windows 10 prices for Home and Pro versions revealed

Those who aren't eligible for the free Windows 10 upgrade will have to deal out some serious cash to upgrade to Microsoft's latest operating system.


Microsoft has revealed it will cost $119 for Windows 10 Home and $199 for Windows 10 Pro.

Microsoft announced earlier this week Windows 10 will be launching on July 29. The upcoming OS will be available for free for eligible Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 customers, with Microsoft even going as far as launching a new taskbar app that makes it easy to register for a free copy.

But for those ineligible for a free upgrade to Windows 10, they’ll have to dish out over $100 for the Home version of the upcoming operating system and $200 for its Pro version. Customers who purchase the Home version and wish to upgrade to Pro, Microsoft won’t be cutting you any deals as you’ll need to purchase a Windows 10 Pro Pack for $99.

Windows 10 Home and Pro are just two of the several variations Microsoft plans to release this summer. We already know it will have a number of impressive features, such as the ability to stream games from the Xbox One to any PC or tablet. There may be some relief for PC owners to play Xbox-exclusive titles on their platform of choice as there are rumors saying Microsoft plans on doing just that. With the recent news of both Microsoft and Xbox attending E3’s PC Gaming Show, there could be some legitimacy to that rumor.
