Microsoft offers discount on Windows 8 Pro

Microsoft is offering Windows 8 Pro at a great discount, but this offer is limited to only a certain group of people who have purchased Windows 7 PCs.

If you have bought a Windows 7 PC this year, the new “Windows Upgrade Offer” is just for you. To be precise, you qualify for the Windows 8 offer if you have purchased Windows 7 PC between 2 June 2012 and 31 January 2013.

Cost of Windows 8 Pro

Windows 8 Pro will be available for purchase and download starting October 26th, and if you plan to buy the Pro version only after the launch, be prepared to pay $39.99. However, you can buy Windows 8 Pro right now for $14.99 (INR 699) under the “Windows Upgrade Offer” — that’s a significant (almost 65%) discount.
