Microsoft's Windows 8 Pro Slashed to £44.99 Online

By Gary Cutlack on at

Microsoft's web shop has lopped a chunk off the asking price of a Windows 8 Pro upgrade, yoyo-ing it back down to £44.99 -- cheaper than the £99 price of standard Win8. Either someone's stuck a wrong number in a database or there's a new push to get us upgrading going on. If you can bring yourself to click on such a grammatically poor piece of text as "Shop this edition" it could be yours right now via download or legacy disc-in-the-post method. [MS Store via PC Pro]
