    I was curious about the cost of these anytime upgrades and instead of
    getting a straight answer from the FAQ in the above link, you get this:

    "You'll see pricing information for each edition during the Windows
    Anytime Upgrade process. You can also go to an electronics store to see
    prices and to buy a Windows Anytime Upgrade key."
    During the Windows Anytime Upgrade process? Isn't that kinda' late if
    price is the deciding factor whether I want to upgrade in the first
    place? So that leaves a trip to a store. I guess it must be different at
    many places.

    Just start the upgrade via this process...
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/...of-windows-7-by-using-windows-anytime-upgrade

    And after it evaluates what you have and where you want to upgrade to, it
    will give you the price before you enter any $$$ information or actually
    start the upgrade. You can then decide to continue, pay, and perform
    upgrade or quit with nothing changed and no money spent.
