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.
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.
Go to http://windowsUpgradeOffer.com website.
Select your country from the list — over 140 countries can avail this discount.
Hit the Continue button. The exact cost of Windows 8, depending on the country selected, will be shown.
Register by entering your personal information, PC model, brand, date of Windows 7 purchase, and other information.
If your Windows computer is not eligible for this discount offer — like mine — you will get this message:
The last day to register and order your Windows 8 Pro copy at this price is 28 February 2013.
