Microsoft reveals Windows 8 upgrade pricing for the UK

  1. #21

    Pfffft... Just brought a second hand Acer desktop with a Vista Home Premium key on the side thinking I may be able to upgrade it to 8 Pro. Got the Enterprise Eval on it right now, and despite any previous posts I may have made am actually loving it now. Got everything I need for work/office working perfectly, even odd little things like address label templates for Office 2013 Preview.

    This is going to cost me a fortune in 87 days unless I reinstall :-/
