    Average cost of a Windows 8 Laptop?


    Hi guys!,
    I know its a bit early yet and I'll have to wait quite a while but, I wanted to know what would the average cost of a Windows 8 Laptop be? Or just the cost of upgrading from Windows 7 to 8. Anyone will do, Because it gives me time to save up .

    Regards,

    Expect the price of win 8 to be about around win 7's price..... and win 7 price will come down once 8 is out
