Windows 8 Upgrade Pricing Goes Up Next Month – Get Your Copy Today!
Today is the LAST day to buy a computer with Windows 7 on it and be able to buy the Windows 8 upgrade for only $14.99.

While you can still register for the upgrade until February 28th, today is the last day you can purchase the computer and qualify for the upgrade. Register for your upgrade here.
If you did not buy a new computer, the last day to purchase a copy of Windows 8 for $39.99 is today. Again, that’s TODAY, January 31st, 2012. You can buy a copy from Microsoft here. Other sellers have offered various rebates/freebies/gifts cards with purchase of a Windows 8 upgrade in the past (I bought my copy for $60 on Amazon, but it came with a $30 Amazon credit), so it helps to shop around. Starting February 1, the Windows 8 upgrade price is $119.99 for the standard version of Windows 8 and $199.99 for the Pro edition. The only discount Microsoft is currently offering after February 1st is $69.99 for Windows 8 Pro for qualifying students.

And I’m never looking back…
