Netbook makers clearing Windows XP inventory

Posted on Thursday, July 02 2009 @ 00:45:10 CEST by

DigiTimes writes netbook vendors are clearing inventory of netbooks with Windows XP as Microsoft has precluded this operating system from upgrading to Windows 7.
Although many netbook vendors believe customers are not willing to pay a premium for Windows 7 and therefore will continue to prefer having the lower-cost Windows XP loaded on the netbook, other vendors have voiced concerns that precluding Windows XP from the upgrade program may cause some negative publicity within the netbook segment.

In general, netbook vendors are considering bundling Intel Atom N270- and N280-based netbooks with Windows XP and Atom N450-based netbooks with Windows 7 due to pricing concerns. The current price of Windows XP OEM version is only around US$25-30, while recent quotes from Microsoft for the netbook version of Windows 7 have been around US$45-55.
