Sitting here reading a couple of threads, and thought ok lets follow the link to the Windows 8 upgrade advisor and see what happens.
Ran the advisor, picked up that 8 of my apps need updates, not a problem but the rest are ok. no hardware issues except can't use Win8 secure boot as bios doesn't support UEFI, not bothered about that.
The followed the rest of the upgrade advisor. I run Win 7 Ultimate X64 with 3 x 27" monitors so the advisor came up with win8 pro, then asked me if i wanted to keep all settings, just my personal files or nothing so thought ok lets try each one and see what the advisor says every time the advisor came back with Win8 pro at £24.99.
So thought ok just been paid only £24.99 the bluerays from HMV can wait till next week, so pressed the buy now button.
