Microsoft raises Windows 8 Pro upgrade to $200 in February
Microsoft will be changing the price of the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/277620==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/07/02/downloadable.windows.8.upgrade.promotion.runs.unti l.january/" rel='nofollow'>Windows 8 Pro upgrade</a> at the end of January, and has also detailed the cost of other Windows 8 upgrade options. The operating system maker will be putting the price of the online and retail upgrades of Windows 8 Pro up to $200 in February, once the current promotional pricing offer runs out. <br />
<br />
According to a company blog <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/277621==http://blogs.windows.com/windows/b/bloggingwindows/archive/2013/01/18/update-on-windows-8-pricing.aspx" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">post</a>, the Windows 8 standard upgrade will be priced at $120, and the Windows 8 Pro Pack, which will turn Windows 8 standard into Windows 8 Pro, will cost $100. <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/277622==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/11/21/promotional.upgrade.performs.activation.on.leaked. version/" rel='nofollow'>Windows 8 Media Center</a>, currently available as a free upgrade through online redemption, will cost $10.

The current promotional offer will run until January 31st, and costs $40 via the download method or $70 using a DVD. Buyers of Windows 7 PCs between June 2nd 2012 and January 31st 2013 will still be able to <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/277623==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/05/14/windows.8.pro.upgrade.to.be.15.option.on.windows.7 .pcs/" rel='nofollow'>upgrade</a> to Windows 8 Pro for $15 until the end of February.

Windows 8 has seen weak sales thus far, something that was blamed by <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/277624==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/12/30/fujitsu.blames.soft.windows.8.demand.for.weak.pc.s ales/" rel='nofollow'>Fujitsu</a> for the company missing its annual shipment target for personal computers.
