Windows 8.1 Price - fixedByVonnie

Windows 8.1 Price

Windows 8.1 will be available on October 18th in New Zealand at midnight which translates to October 17th at 4am Pacific Time.  Microsoft hopes this update will inaugurate a new era for desktop computing.  With features like Skydrive integration, built-in Skype functionality and the new and improved Internet Explorer 11 (IE11), Windows 8.1 is a noteworthy update that should be considered.

How to get Windows 8.1

Currently, You can download the Windows 8.1 Public Preview ISO from Microsoft’s website.  In a few days, you’ll have the ability to download Windows 8.1 directly from the Windows Store on your Windows 8 PC.

If you’re using Windows 7 you can easily upgrade to Windows 8.1 by buying the retail DVD at $119.99 US dollars or grabbing Windows 8.1 Pro for $199.99.  Alternatively, you’ll have the option to download the operating system from Windows.com.

The major pricing difference between Windows 8.1 and Windows 8 is that the former doesn’t require an existing Windows installation.  Windows 8.1 is the full operating system; it isn’t an upgrade like Windows 8.

You can read more about the pricing and packaging on the official Microsoft blog.

What do you think of the $119.99 price tag?  Is it worth it? Let me know in the comments below.
