I have been trying for a couple of days now but keep being informed there is a problem. Contacted MS but they won't say. I have an Acer Iconia w500 on Windows 7. Anyone got any views.

Just save yourself the hassle, spend 2x as much (it's still only $40) and just buy what you are entitled to. Don't take advantage of the system.

^^^^^^^

$40 is still one hell of a deal for a new OS, just buy it now while you can and enjoy the discount. the $15 is for those that bought windows 7 machines just months before it got replaced with windows 8.

I agree with pparks.

Corporations will take advantage of you any way they can.

But I just can't bring myself to do the same.

Maybe that is why I am not a billionaire.
