Yes, i agree. I was quite confused. It's been a while since we did any work on this site, and i did not remember that the responsive design was not included.
To be honest i find the renewal price very high. I have worked with various clients who purchased sitefinity all the way back to version 3. and none of them ever renewed after the first year.
Not that they did not want to, it was always a price barrier.
It's the same with this site, the client paid for the site, we build it, then they left it alone for a while.
Now they want to make some big changes, it would be good if they could upgrade to the new version to utilize some of the new features and also get some support. But $2600 for going from 6.1 to 7.2 is just too much for them. it's almost as much as buying a new product.
The $1000 for the responsive design module is also a little bit steep. But this is what we will go for i imagine, i am pretty sure they will not want me to upgrade to version 7.
Although there has been some talk of abandoning sitefinity also, in favor of some free CMS. But as i told them nothing is really ever free. still the price of sitefinity is not helping my argument.
