Windows 8 upgrades to cost $15 and $40
Microsoft is offering all current and valid Windows users to upgrade to the Metro-flavored OS for a reasonable price.
The Redmond-based OS giant confirmed that their loyal PC users will be able to upgrade their current supported (XP, Vista and Windows 7) OS to Windows 8 for only $39.99 or about Php1,680.
This upgrade is noticeably cheaper as compared to the previous upgrade (XP or Vista to Windows 7) which costs $99 for Ultimate and $49 for Home Premium. And on top of this, Microsoft is also offering another huge discount for early adopters. Users who bought a new Windows 7 PC starting June 2, 2012 to January 31, 2013 will be able to upgrade to the new OS for only $14.99.
This cheaper upgrade is definitely good news for Windows users around the world. We think that the price drop will lessen, if not prevent the use illegal OS. But will it really? We want to know if the upgrade price is affordable enough for you to take it or would you rather prefer the cheaper and not-so-legal way of upgrading?
