Microsoft has done a good job making sure that everyone is able to upgrade to its newest operating system. To start they’ve made it available to all PC users who are currently running Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7. The upgrade is available for the surprisingly low price of $39.99 compared to what it has been in the past. It is also available in 131 markets currently.
By using Windows.com to upgrade to Windows 8 pro, you get the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant to help you out with any trouble you are having installing the new software. It also gives you a step-by-step guide on installing. You’ll have the option to buy a $15 backup dvd as well when downloading it. Another feature of the promotion is the ability to download Windows Media Center for free as an add-on. If you prefer to buy it from a local store for some reason as opposed to downloading it online, you’ll be paying $69.99 to get a packaged DVD version of the upgrade. Don’t wait too long to upgrade if you are interested as it only lasts through January 2013.
