Pre-Order Visual Studio 2010 Professional upgrade today, and save hundreds

  • Comments 8

Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Professional will launch on April 12 but you can beat the rush and secure your copy today by pre-ordering at the affordable estimated retail price of $549, a saving of $250.

If you use a previous version of Visual Studio or any other development tool then you are eligible for this upgrade. Along with all the great new features in Visual Studio 2010 (see www.microsoft.com/visualstudio) Visual Studio 2010 Professional includes a 12-month MSDN Essentials subscription which gives you access to core Microsoft platforms: Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise, and Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Datacenter.

So visit http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/en-us/pre-order-visual-studio-2010 to check out all the new features and sign up for this great offer.

  • The second link does not appear to be live yet. Or is it a typo?

  • http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/en-us/pre-order-visual-studio-2010

    The above URL is dead.

  • Hello Ivo / Ravisankar,

    I tried both links and they seem to work for me.  Can you try again and let me know if they are still innaccessible.

    Thanks,

  • Hi,

    I'd like to order, but I have some questions:

    1. the preorder from MS, am I elligible in the EU?

    2. Does the preorder from MS include boxed product?

  • Sweet! Its live now. Thanks, I'll be preordering.

  • *Whew* For a moment I thought Professional only came with MSDN Essentials now; glad to see we still have the other option.

    But, forgive me if I'm wrong, how is this a pre-order special? Unless they're note noting that these are limited-time pricing, http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/en-us/products has $549 as the price for this.

  • James, Mike -- I attached the official FAQ to the post which hopefully helps answer your questions.

  • Thanks for the additional link, but the marketing is still odd.

    On that page we first have

    "Pre-order now and save *$250 off the estimated retail price*."

    followed a short time later by

    "Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Professional will launch on April 12, but you can beat the rush and secure your copy today by pre-ordering at the affordable *estimated retail price of $549* (US)."

    $250 off the estimate retail price of $549 != $549.

    Better to just make "Pre-order now and pay later." stand out more.
