Get Windows 8 For Only $15 When It’s Released If You Buy A PC After June 2nd
Are you in the market for a computer? If so, you have probably been thinking about waiting until October, so you can just get your hands on the new copy of Windows. I mean, who wants to spend an untold fortune on a new computer and then have to spend more money in order to upgrade the operating system in October?
Well, there is no need for you to panic and you won’t have to wait around for Microsoft to kick things into gear. If you pick up a new PC after June 2nd that has Windows 7 installed, you will receive a coupon in the mail that will allow you to get Windows 8 Professional when it is released for only $14.99. Now, that sounds like a good deal to me.
There has not been many other details released about this and as of right now it can only be labeled as a rumor until this bit of information is actually confirmed by Microsoft. The reason they are offering this up to people is a way to keep sales on hardware moving along without a hitch until Windows 8 makes its big debut. If you are wondering why you have to pay $14.99, it is probably going to cover the cost of going up from the basic version of Windows 8 to the professional version. However, Windows 8 Professional can be considered something you need, because the basic version of Windows 8 does not have the ability to play DVDs and Blu-ray. Therefore, Microsoft wants to cover their tales, because they do not want people complaining that they lost functionality when they were given a “free” upgrade.
If you have been thinking about snagging a new PC, this is great news for you. First of all, you will be able to get a new PC and upgrade to Windows 8 once it is released for a low cost; providing the operating system opens to good reviews. However, if it flunks out, you will already be familiar with Windows 7 and will not have to upgrade. So, either way, it is a win-win situation.
