Cost to Upgrade from XP to Vista Ultimate?

I just bought a new HP laptop with XPpro. I know I get an upgrade to Vista Business, but I wanted to know how much extra it would cost to upgrade up to Ultimate and I can't get an answer. Hp couldn't tell me and Microsoft sent me into "email from hell loop" that never answered my question, I gave up! Anybody have the answer?
Thanks FB

How about...

Vista pricing just hasn't been settled yet or is "offical" for lack of anything else. But, it seems these pricing schemes get offered Wink

Now, you can take it from there, or google for more pricing. I suggest, in you case as you get your release, look for the upgrade path to the next level of Vista. As I see, unless you have real need for Vista Ulitimate, be happy with the business version as it covers alot of what everyone could possibility need.

Does not include the Media Edition package found in Vista premium. Ultimate contains everything from every version.
