If you purchased a Windows 7 PC within the last few months, then you might be wondering why you’re using Windows 7 when a new operating system is just around the corner. Fortunately for you, Microsoft hears your pain and has announced an upgrade offer for all Windows 7 users who bought a new PC on or after June 2, 2012.
If you bought a Windows 7 PC after that date, you’re eligible to upgrade to Windows 8 Pro for just $14.99. All you need to do is visit this official Microsoft website and type in your 25-digit Windows 7 product key. Then, you’ll be signed up to receive Windows 8 Pro when it comes out on October 26.
$14.99 might seem like a rock-bottom price, but the deal isn’t as perfect as some people are led to believe. In the past, Windows users who upgraded PCs within months of a new Windows release date were able to upgrade their systems for free, which is $14.99 less than the Windows 8 upgrade offer.
Nevertheless, free and $14.99 aren’t too far apart, and if you just dropped several hundred dollars on a new Windows 7 PC, then you might not mind paying a few extra dollars for a brand new operating system. And, in the past, the free upgrade offers from Microsoft were for the most basic version of the new operating system. Today, the $14.99 upgrade gives users access to the full ‘Pro’ version. Of course, many people may not want to upgrade to Windows 8 at all, and that’s okay too.
Windows 8 is designed to be lighter and faster than Windows 7 in many ways, and on PCs that are less than a year old, Windows 8 users should notice a nice little speed boost. If you’re interested in trying a brand new operating system for a low price of $14.99, sign up for Microsoft’s Upgrade Offer today. Remember: it expires on January 31, 2013. If you sign up today, you’ll be able to upgrade to Windows 8 as soon as October 26 rolls around.
