Quicken 2017 is announced

It already shows up on amazon.com. Some versions are in pre-order state though.
Quicken.com has info. It looks like the Mac version is significantly improved, lots of new features. The "What's New" page for the Mac version includes this language: NEW Upgrade with ease * Convert from Quicken Windows to Quicken Mac with one click
I don't think the Mac version has feature parity with Windows yet. But this is encouraging. I for one would *love* to get rid of Windows. Maybe next year ...

Hmm....I am looking at:

. . That's the only edition that says "Displays up-to-date portfolio value" in the list of features. So, without any other knowledge, it looks like to do stock portfolio accounts with OSU updates, you need to purchase the top of the line ("Premier") version at 109.99 .
Yikes!

I know it's too early to ask, but as some of you get Quicken 2017 for Windows, I'd be very interested in hearing what you find that's different from 2016 in it, and how you like the changes.
I'm running QW 2016 deluxe now. Over the years, I've generally upgraded only every other year, but I'm open to getting 2017 if it looks like there will be significant improvements in it.
I have no interest in Quicken Mac.

And by the way, I paid (probably at full retail at that) for Deluxe last year for Q 2016 a mere $37.99.
I hope I'm wrong. I've usually upgraded yearly, but this might be ridiculous.

I have no problem paying more as long as they provide a useful product and continue to support it. Because if it becomes unprofitable for Quicken to continue, we will all be up a creek...

I think you're jumping to conclusions. I suggest you wait until the product is released so your guess can be verified. I believe your concern will turn out to be unfounded.

Thanks John, I did say "...without any other knowledge,...", so indeed hope you're right as I did leave wiggle room in my OP.
Since it seems they some fairly large changes to this product (as well as being the first one out of the chute for the new company), at least in the UI, I think I'll hold back on the purchase and see what the reviews are before jumping into the water as early as I have done in the past.
Cheers!

Virtually every single year someone posts the exact same concern as yours ... and it has been demonstrated every single year to never have been a valid concern.
Secondly; since there is no way to determine for certain until the product is released (unless you want to become a beta tester), it makes no sense to ask the question, much less to draw a conclusion (even one with reservations) in public.
As far as waiting to purchase, I have always suggested doing that. If you wait until February or March to buy, not only will you learn a lot about which edition contains what features, but you will be much better able to determine whether you want the product at all ... and to have plenty of time to test it and return it within the 60 day window for a full refund (if you buy in February or March, you will likely be able to test with the final patch before the 60 days is up).

Thanks. I just went there to have a look. One of the things it says is
"What's New for Quicken Deluxe 2017?
"- Get more power on the go with our improved mobile app, now with investment tracking, offline use and enhanced search*
"- Enjoy a new look that's easier to use and navigate"
Just those two things? I have no interest in a mobile app and if the only other thing that's new is its "new look," I'll pass on this. As far as I'm concerned, the old look is fine, and it's easier to stay with I'm used to than to learn how to use a new interface.
But as always, I'm open to changing my mind if someone here has tried it and can convince me that I should.

The current UI has been really dated for some time now, and there have been issues with how screen refreshes work (or don't). Some of the comments suggest that the new UI is a useful update, but whether it's worth $75 is another question.
Still, I'm afraid the era of inexpensive desktop software has passed. The number of people who want the privacy and security of a desktop solution won't support mass market pricing.

I just bought and downloaded a copy of Quicken 2017 Premier for $99.99 and have been using it for the past few days. I have not had any problems. I do like the updated user interface but the old version was never a problem. I have this installed on my HP Pavilion with Windows 10 as the OS. Everything is updated and running well.
The price seems a bit high but when one stops to consider, the price of everything is much higher than it was just a few years ago. I bought a new 1974 Chevrolet Monte Carlo and it cost me $4200, cash, with no trade-in. I thought that was extreme but this same kind of vehicle today would cost about ten times this amount. Gordon

Also - will be interesting to see if Costco handles it this year and if so, how it's priced there. Not on Costco Online right now, but that's not unusual.

Glad to hear that. What can you tell us about the differences between it and QW2016? Is the interface the only difference, or is there anything else?
As Arthur Conan Doyle, quoted above, says, the 2016 UI may be dated, but that's of no importance to me. As I said, it works well, and I'm familiar with it, so I'm not interested in paying for nothing but a new interface. And I have had no issues with the screen refreshing.

I don't see any pictures of the new look - anyone know where to review the revised look??

I haven't yet used my new version enough to reliably answer this question but so far I have not found any significant changes in the way it works. It does seem faster and less inclined to stall our or lock up when downloading complex information but this may be the result of the folders all being cleaned up in the installation process. Gordon

I have used Quicken Deluxe for years but I only use Quicken for bank accounts and credit cards. I do use it to get my current Schwab status, but I can like without that since it's all at schwab.com. I do not track any investments or gains/losses. I pay bills with Quicken through my bank.
From the comparison it looks like the Starter Edition may do all I need. Am I missing something? Hopefully the Starter Edition could import my prior data. I have one account that goes back to 2003. Anyone know about this?

The Starter Edition is not able to import a Quicken Deluxe generated data file.

Thanks. It looks like I'll probably pass this year. I haven't had any problems with speed, stalling, or locking up.
