Vista's Second Launch: This Time, It's for Real
Last November, I sent a couple of reporters down to the launch of Vista in
New York. After five years of waiting, the launch was as underwhelming Milli
Vanilli singing their own songs. Today, Redmond is pulling
out all the stops for the consumer launch of Vista
, again in the Big Apple.
Expect a lot of fanfare, but don't count on learning anything new.
As a lowly journalist, I was wondering about the prices of new Vista PCs, so
I went to one of my most trusted research resources: Parade magazine!
There on the back page was the trusty Dell ad. A Vista PC sells for $599 and
a laptop is a sweet $699. With these prices, Vista is now the de facto
standard for new consumer PCs.
