Since Windows 8 was made available, you could grab the upgrade to Windows 8 Pro download for just $39.99 and the retail box version for $69.99.  The last day for this promotion is January 31st and after that prices go way up.

Prices starting in February:

  • 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.).

I grabbed the $39 deal and was happy paying that price.  If you were thinking about upgrading, now is a good time.

More info at the Windows blog.

If you get Pro I recommend strongly that you pickup your free Media Centre pack key before the end of the month.  At least if you wish to use any MPEG2 based DeskScapes dreams in the future without further spending.

OK, I didn't know about that. I'll go get it. Thanks, Neil!
