UK Windows 8 Pro Upgrade Deal Price Announced
As you may have read, Microsoft’s promotional offer for Windows 8 Pro has a 3 month window – but the Big M has just announced its special deal when upgrading your new machine to the Windows 8 operating system.
If you bought a Windows 7 PC or laptop since June 2012 you could get the latest operating system on your new puter for less than £15!
It looks as though Microsoft knows your pain after forking out a hefty wad of cash only to have your brand spanking new machine suddenly become out-of-date a few months later.
When Windows 8 lands on October the 26th any customer running the current Windows 7 system purchased between June 2, 2012 and January 31, 2013 can register for a much cheaper upgrade to Windows 8 – £14.99! 🙂
The offer will run until February 28th 2013 – after that it will cost you full price.
Microsoft announced the deal via Twitter: “The @Windows upgrade offer is now available in 140 countries,” it read. “Register now! http://windowsupgradeoffer.com.”
If you want to take part in the deal you will need to provide Microsoft with your 25-digit Windows 7 product key as part of the online registration process, then from October 26th, Microsoft will send out promo codes via email, which can then be applied upon checkout within the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant.
Microsoft still haven’t released the pricing information for normal upgrade customers but with the final release date looming it can’t be far off.
