A $39.99 Windows 8 download beats all retail offers

With Windows 8 officially launched few weeks ago, Microsoft Store and other retail partners of the company are now stocked with different versions of the new software. Prices vary from $39.99 online to 729 Dirhams ($200) at some outlets in The Dubai Mall. The choice is yours where to shop! 

During the pre-order promotions for Windows 8, the best price available online – $69.99 – was of course at Microsoft Store, although a number of e-commerce stores like Amazon participated in the campaign.

Microsoft handled the launch of Windows 8 in two phases: pre-order and launch. The pre-order phase was primarily geared towards buyers looking for boxed copies of Windows and with delivery on the 26th of October; unsurprisingly these boxed copies are still priced notably higher than Microsoft’s Windows 8 download options.

As for buyers looking to take advantage of Microsoft’s previously announced $39.99 download offer, that offer is now available online at Microsoft Store exclusively.

On that note, as previously announced both the boxed and download copies are now offered with promotional pricing, with Microsoft Store selling the upgrades at a significant discount until January 31, 2013.

In addition, getting the new software online is fast and secure!
