Even if you don’t plan on upgrading to Windows 8 right now, buy the upgrade for just $39.99…Now!! After January 31 the price will skyrocket to an incredible (and unacceptable IMHO) $199.99…for a wretched upgrade. Microsoft is trying to drive sales of new PC’s with Win 8 already installed by choking off the upgrade market. BTW the upgrade right now can be painlessly downloaded from Microsoft. Full Story
Our suggestion: Download the upgrade to Windows 8 now even if you will not install it until later.
