More on Windows 8: Newegg has leaked pricing: a "Professional Upgrade" for enterprises will cost $70, an OEM version (used in new PCs) will cost $100, and a standalone copy of Windows 8 Pro will cost $140. Microsoft (MSFT) has already said consumers will be able to upgrade for $40. Given Microsoft's history of gradually raising Windows prices, the pricing is relatively aggressive. Windows RT, which ships with a tablet-friendly version of Office, reportedly costs OEMs $50-$65.
