How Much is Windows 11 Going to Cost?
Here we are, how much money do I need to spend on Windows 11? One thing I know for sure is that this version of OS is not going to be cheap for sure.
I have good news too, If you are using a licensed Windows 10 then you will get the free upgrade. Microsoft has officially said it and they will send the upgrade to every PC by mid-2022, as it is a long process and a system check is to be done before sending the update of Windows 11 to a PC. Windows 10 S pro should be on your computer for a free upgrade. We recommend you to keep checking the update section and keep your PC up to date.
Although, there are many methods of downloading Windows 11 manually and we have discussed the methods in previous posts. But If you missed the free upgrade then you may have to buy Windows 11 and the price will be higher than Windows 10 for sure.
Also, this process will not be hard as the previous Windows 7/8 upgraded to Windows 10 2 years ago. Just hope for the lower prices, that’s all we can do and it will be worth the upgrade. I can assure you that at least.
How Much is Windows 11 Home vs Pro?
As we all know Windows is always released in two versions, one is home and the other is the Pro version. The Pro version is always costlier than the Home version. We don’t know about the actual price of windows 11 yet but a guess can be made.
I think that there will be a huge difference in the prices of windows 11 home vs pro. Windows 10 home was priced at 110$ and the pro version was $199. According to us, the Windows 11 home version will be somewhere between 110-140$ and the Pro version will be between 190-210$.

If you buy a new computer, a Windows copy will come with that and you will surely look for an upgrade. For some users, it may be costly but it is what it is, nothing can be done.
Also, If you are not using Windows for professional work and don’t need advanced features then just opt for the Windows 11 home version.
One cheap alternative is you can buy OEM keys for activating Windows and they always cost much less. Once the price is revealed we will come with a post, if there is any trick to get the Windows 11 at a cheap price, don’t worry we have got you covered will share a post for sure in the future.
