When you include replacement hardware, admin costs, application testing, and replacing incompatible apps, Gartner's VP of research, Michael Silver, believes that in a hypothetical organization with 2,500 Windows users, the cost of upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 7 will run $1,035 to $1,930 per user."
