Windows 7 Family Pack priced at $150

Microsoft has placed a $149.99 price tag on the Windows 7 Family Pack, which lets as many as three PCs in a single household upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium edition. Users in Canada will pay $199.99.

Microsoft's official blogger Brandon LeBlanc confirmed the three-license pack last week, but did not include the price.

"We have heard a lot of feedback from beta testers and enthusiasts over the last 3 years that we need a better solution for homes with multiple PCs," LeBlanc wrote. "I'm happy to confirm that we will indeed be offering a family pack of Windows 7 Home Premium (in select markets) which will allow installation on up to 3 PCs."

Prior to LeBlanc's announcement, the three-license pack was rumored due to terms discovered in a leaked version of Windows 7 Home Premium Edition.

The Windows 7 Family Pack will be available on October 22, the same day the operating system is released to the public.

Additionally, Microsoft has announced Windows 7's Anytime Upgrade pricing, the scale for users who purchase machines with Home Premium or Starter Editions and wish to upgrade.
