Windows 8.1 available for pre-order at $119.99
A year after Microsoft unveiled Windows 8, the mega-billion-dollar Redmond outfit have stated racking orders for Windows 8.1. A DVD unit of the Windows 8 comes at $119.99 and can be pre-ordered at Microsoft Store.
Good news is that if you’re already running Windows 8, your Windows 8.1 upgrade will not set you back a cent as long as you can use the OS update button on your Windows 8 computer.
Microsoft clearly stated that “Windows 8.1 is not designed for installation on devices running Windows XP or Windows Vista.” This means you can now dispose safely, of that Window’s 98 desktop computer you inherited from your distant uncle.
