Buying New Windows

Buying New Windows -- Has anyone bought new windows lately? Our house sure needs them!
Our neighbors had new windows installed recently and we had the company representative come by yesterday to give us an estimate. For 10 windows, 3 of which are tall & narrow (requiring custum building no matter who we order from), the others are normal sized bedroom & bathroom & hallway & kitchen windows - the cost is $7,500, includes removal & installation. We have 6 other windows plus a patio door but those don't need replacing just yet.
This seems like a lot of $ to us. Granted they are very nice quality double hung windows - maintance free, sashes tilt out for cleaning, warranty transferable to any new home owner, etc. http://centuryonebuilders.com/windows/doublehung.htm
Several homes in our neighborhood have used this company.
Does this seem a reasonable estimate? Of course we recieved the sales pitch - windows & installation is better than other companies, discounts for "first time visit", "family military service", etc.
