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.).
