    Ms offers special discounts to users of XP


    If you’re still using Windows XP right now, but you are planning to move to another platform, this could be the right time to do it.

    Microsoft has recently launched a price cut campaign for Windows XP users that brings them PCs capable of running the modern operating system Windows 8.1 flawlessly, which means that you would remain secure once support for XP comes to an end on April 8.

    Basically, if you decide to purchase a new PC from the Microsoft store, you receive a $50 (€36) gift card, 90 days of free support and access to Laplink’s data transfer solution that can help you move files from a Windows XP machine to a new computer running Windows 8.1.

    Microsoft is offering $50 (€36) discounts for laptops, $70 (€50) for tablets, and up to $300 (€215) for all-in-ones, thus making this new promo pretty exciting for all Windows XP users who were planning to upgrade to a new OS version.

    They're pulling out all the stops to boost Windows 8 sales.
    The majority of XP users will more likely move to Windows 7, than Windows 8.

    I need to upgrade my mom's computer and she will be getting 7. Giving her 8 would be a huge mistake.
