48 hours to buy the upgrade to Windows 8, a couple of years or so to install…
At the moment you can buy the Windows 8 Pro upgrade for £24.99 (electronic download version) but the offer ends 31st January 2013. You can install this any time up to 26th October 2015.
So if, like me, you don’t feel quite ready to commit to Windows 8 on an existing (non touch) laptop, but feel the O.S. might come good given a bit of time then now is the time to buy the upgrade!
Although I tried Windows 8 and rejected it some time ago as the main O.S. on my laptop, lately I have been contemplating a dual boot scenario. If I get around to that I will post it up!
The “buy now, upgrade later” tip is straight from Paul Thurrott’s Supersite for Windows which you can find here.
Buy the upgrade here.
Also if you haven’t already, check out the “Netcast” Windows Weekly where Paul and Mary Jo Foley of ZDNet discuss weekly Windows news with anchor man Leo Laporte. I listen to this every week on my commute to/from the office as well as some of the other TWIT Netcasts.
