Windows 8 Pro Upgrade to be $15 Option on Windows 7 PCs

Posted by at 12:41 pm on May 15, 2012

Microsoft will soon begin offering a promotion to buyers of Windows 7 PCs that will allow them to upgrade to Windows 8 Pro for just $15, WinSuperSite reported. The special offering will kick off on June 2, with the idea being to ‘future-proof’ computers and motivate buyers who may otherwise hold off on a new purchase as they await the latest software to come out. In previous, similar promotions, however, Microsoft offered equivalent versions of the software to the one they’ve purchased, but this time it seems to be upgrading them to the Pro version.

The offer starts at nearly the same time that Microsoft committed to the release of the Release Preview, slated for the first week of June. The full version of Windows 8 is due to arrive sometime in the fall, though no specific date has yet been revealed.

Other upgrades will be offered as packs, including the ability to upgrade to Windows 8 Pro and Windows Media Center. They will take the place of the current Windows Anywhere Upgrade system and be part of a new Add Features to Windows 8 interface.
