Win 8 Upgrades On Sale

If you are a Windows 7 consumer you can now pre-order and pay for Windows 8, available Oct 26. If you want the DVD version (handy when it comes time to rebuild -- which you know will be necessary at some time) it'll cost about $70. A downloadable upgrade is about $40 for Windows 7 users.

If these upgrades sound enticing, don't dilly dally. These prices are only good 'til the end of the year. After that the prices shoot up to a jaw-dropping $200. With Win 8 tablets expected to start at around $300 you may be better off buying a new machine.

What are your Win 8 upgrade plans? Detail them by writing to me at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
