You Have Two Weeks to Buy Windows 8 Before the Price Rises

Microsoft's (NASDAQ: MSFT) latest OS, the touch-friendly Windows 8, is scheduled to receive a massive price increase next month.

The company detailed its new pricing strategy today while reminding consumers that the lower, introductory prices were always intended to be a limited-time offer.

On February 1, the following Windows 8 prices will go into effect:

  • The Windows 8 Pro upgrade edition will be available online and at retail for $199.99 MSRP (U.S.).
  • The Windows 8 upgrade edition will be available online and at retail for $119.99 MSRP (U.S.).
  • The Windows 8 Pro Pack will cost $99.99 MSRP (U.S.).
  • The Windows 8 Media Center Pack will cost $9.99 MSRP (U.S.).

This means that consumers have less than two weeks to upgrade before Microsoft adjusts the prices.
