A leaked Best Buy company memo detailing how the retailer will handle Windows 7 upgrades. According to memo, Best Buy will kick off its Technology Guarantee program on June 26. Beginning on that date, you’ll be able to buy a PC with Windows Vista Home Premium, Business, or Ultimate and get a coupon good for a free upgrade to Windows 7 when it’s released in October 22nd.  The other, more interesting detail is that Best Buy plans to pre-sell select versions of Windows 7 online, for a 16-day period that runs from June 26 through July 11. If the memo is accurate, you’ll be able to buy a Windows 7 Home Premium upgrade package for $49.99 and a Windows 7 Professional upgrade package for $99.99. When asked to comment on the contents of Best Buy memo, a Microsoft spokesperson said “We’re excited to share additional details regarding Windows 7 Upgrade Option programs and other offers to consumers interested in experiencing Windows 7, soon, but do not have additional details to announce at this time.”
