Microsoft has yet to officially announces prices for its stand-alone versions of Windows 10, but online retailer NewEgg may have revealed the prices and a possible release date for both the Home and Professional SKUs of the operating system.
In newly discovered pre-order listings on NewEgg.com, the site shows a price of $109.99 for Windows 10 Home and $149.99 for Windows 10 Professional. Both listings display a release date of August 31 for the products.
It's more than possible that NewEgg.com has jumped the gun and has listed both these versions of Windows 10 with placeholder prices and release dates. It's not an uncommon practice. That being said, this is a major retailer of PC software and hardware and it's likely they might have some inside information.
Remember, what's being listed on the site is for the stand-alone versions of Windows 10, made for installing on all-new PCs or ones that run older operating systems like Windows XP and Vista. Microsoft has already announced that consumers with Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 PCs will be able to upgrade to Windows 10 for free for the first year after the launch of the OS.
