    At that price I'll go for one of these editions !!!.


    Nice one!

    That's what tons of people do and they don't say it...

    I remember a while back, at Media Markt here in Belgium, a legal DVD of Win7 Ultimate was 400 Euro!
    That's NOT a promotion in any case, and I'm sure not many will buy it at such a price.

    A student promotion was 70 Euro for the Proffesional version... that's a big difference and I don't need Ultimate.

    70 dollars for a custom install until January? Ok! I can do that!

    I've read a rumor that adding Media Center will cost about 12 dollars. That doesn't concern me.

    The rumor was that you could basically clean install the 40 dollar upgrade pro version from the RP without having to reinstall Windows 7. If you add in the 12 bucks for WMC you get it all for 52 dollars.

    Noticed today the link for upgrades for people that bought a certified PC. . Any ideas on when the upgrades for the rest of us will be online...

    I was under the impression it was Oct 26th.

    Maybe that is when it is on sale to the general public.

    I think the $40 upgrade includes media centre.

    It is a good deal - MS are doing exactly what they need to - they would have a hard job selling it without that opener.

    I bought a new laptop last week and just registered it on M$ Upgrade Offer website which gives me a download copy of Windows 8 Pro for $14.99AU. Perfect! I only want 1 copy to run on my laptop before I decide whether or not to run it on my main rigs.


    I just got an email saying that on Oct 26 they will email a promo code I can then enter, pay $14.99 and start downloading. The email also says I need to be on the computer I want to upgrade when I start the upgrade order

    Some OEMs are offering reimbursements on the upgrade to Windows 8, like HP for example, has a new advert with their laptop with Beats Audio and at the end it mentioned that.

    im confused on this can anyone shed light on the subject?

    if you had the RP installed or install the RTM version how much will it cost to activate windows 8?

    can you just install the RTM that is circleing around and just pay the activation? if so, how much?
