Geek deals Windows 8 Pro for 39 Wii U bundle more

first_imgWell fellow geeks, October 26th came and the world did not end. Windows 8 is now available to the masses and if you upgrade soon you can save yourself a bundle of cash.The relatively high number of new systems announced to go with Windows 8 did surprised us a bit. A gaggle of new touch-focused PCs were released by the big manufacturers to best take advantage of the new OS, offering streamlined navigation and touch-friendly interaction. Is this the first step to a world where computers act like those in the film Minority Report or just the excitement of manufacturers finally having a reason to sell us something new (Windows 7 certainly wasn’t).Microsoft sure is making it easy to get your hands on their new offering. For just $39.99, the Microsoft Store is offering downloads of the Windows 8 Pro upgrade. This is the lowest out of pocket price we have seen yet for the new OS.Being an upgrade version of the software, you will need to have Windows XP SP3, Vista, or Win 7 installed on your PC already. We have also heard that the “upgrade” process from 7 to 8 is not the destructive “back up files, wipe all, restore files” process that it has been in the past. Head over and check out this offer direct from Microsoft, but keep in mind we have no idea how long they plan to offer it.Deal offers may have changed since original post.Microsoft Windows 8 Pro Upgrade [download] for $39.99Our other top deals:Customizable Sony VAIO 13.3-inch Ivy Bridge Core i5 Laptop for $624.99 + free shipping(normally $724.99 | use coupon code SONYS1311 | ends Nov. 2 or sooner)Pre-order Nintendo Wii U Console Bundle w/ Choice of Game & Controller for $399.88Refurbished Apple iPads WiFi & 3G/4G models, 3rd gen starting at $379 + free shippinglast_img read more
