Dell’s plans for Vista Upgrades

Dell‘s Company Blog has posted this article about their plans for their Upgrade progression for Windows Vista. Let’s hope that AsiaPacific follows the same plan…

Before the Vista launch, our goal is to make it easy as possible for our customers to buy a system now and upgrade to Windows Vista when it comes out. Dell customers who order a system from October 26 – March 15, 2007 will be entitled to a Vista upgrade under Dell’s program. So how does it work?

Home Users:

  • Most of our notebooks and desktops in the Home and Home Office section of our website include XP Media Center Edition 2005 in the price. Customers who buy a machine with Media Center will be eligible for a free upgrade to Windows Vista Premium (plus a nominal shipping and handling fee).
  • On the few entry-level systems that come standard with Windows XP Home, we’ll offer a $10 upgrade to Media Center which includes a free upgrade to Windows Vista Premium (plus a nominal shipping and handling fee).

Small Business Users:

  • The majority of our small business customers purchase a new machine with XP Pro. Those customers will be eligible for a free upgrade to Windows Vista Business (plus a nominal shipping and handling fee).
  • For those small business customers that prefer XP Home, Dell offers an upgrade to Vista Basic for $45 (plus a nominal shipping and handling fee).
