Those planning to make the leap to Windows 8 should do so soon, as the special upgrade pricing of $39.99 for the Pro edition ends on Thursday. You might recall that we posted about this last week, but the deal is good enough that it bears repeating. The pricing after Thursday is as follows:
- The Windows 8 Pro upgrade edition will be available online and at retail for $199.99 MSRP (U.S.).
- The Windows 8 upgrade edition will be available online and at retail for $119.99 MSRP (U.S.).
- The Windows 8 Pro Pack will cost $99.99 MSRP (U.S.).
- The Windows 8 Media Center Pack will cost $9.99 MSRP (U.S.).
You can head on over to the Windows shop to take advantage of this special pricing, or snag a DVD copy at select stores for $69.99. If you already own Windows 8 Pro and would like to take advantage of Windows Media Center, you can grab that for free as well here. Pricing on that goes from $0 to $10 at the end of the week.
