Amazon.com today announced that the Amazon.com Software Store is now offering Microsoft’s new Windows 7 operating system Home Premium Upgrade and Professional Upgrade packages for $49.99 and $99.99, which represent a savings of 50 percent and 58 percent from the suggested retail price.Amazon.com customers can pre-order Windows 7 at these prices now through July 11, while supplies last. Customers who pre-order Windows 7 from Amazon.com can take advantage of the additional convenience of receiving the product when it is released on October 22, which means they can order from their PC or mobile device and receive Windows 7 on the same day it’s released in physical stores.

"The Amazon.com Software Store is providing customers everything they need to make an informed Windows 7 purchase decision, a chance to purchase the software at a significant discount, and to be among the first to get their hands on the product when it becomes available—all without having to go to the store because orders will be delivered on release day," said Stacy Kerr, Director of the Amazon.com Software Store.

The new Amazon.com Resource Center for Windows 7 launched today, offering customers in-depth information on the new operating system. The Windows 7 Resource Center will be updated regularly with the latest commentary from independent industry experts, as well as video demonstrations of new features and customer forums.
