At Crazy Cringely's House of Windows Upgrades, we're slashin' prices to the bone. Are you jonesin' to upgrade from Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Home Premium? It won't cost you $129. Not $127, or even $124. Just $119.99 -- a savings of nearly 8 percent over the cost of upgrading from XP to Vista! Can you believe it?
Hey, I told you we were crazy. But wait, there's more.

For a Limited Time Only, you can upgrade to Windows 7 for just $49.99! That's right -- for less than the cost of a dinner and a movie, you can preorder your copy of Win7 and have it shipped to you next October. (Offer only available from participating retailers in participating markets, ends July 11, void where prohibited by law.)
But the deals don't end there. We're selling the full version of Windows 7 Home Premium for just $199.99 -- a full $40 off the price of Vista Home Premium! That's two Andrew Jacksons you slip right back into you pocket -- or, better yet, put them toward those support calls you'll be making to Microsoft two days after the warranty runs out.
But you're a power user, I can tell. You want the Full Monty, all that Windows has to offer. And that means Windows 7 Professional or Windows 7 Ultimate. And you can get them too, for $199.99 and $219.99 (upgrade) or $299.99 and $319.99 (full versions). That's a discount off current Vista prices of exactly, well, zero.
Now I know what you're saying. You're saying, "Times are tough, Cringe. We can barely put food on the table, let alone drop $200 or $300 on what could turn out to be yet another disappointing Microsoft operating system." Well, we have a deal for you. You can upgrade to Windows 7 ABSOLUTELY FREE.
Yes, that's right. For no money down and no money later, you can have the latest, greatest, most whiz-bangiest Windows system ever made (at least, until the next version comes out) and it won't cost you a plug nickel.
