How much is a Windows 8 upgrade ?
Before upgrading to Windows 8, we recommend that you run the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant..
It scans your current PC to see if it is ready for Windows 8 and then provides a compatibility report and optional steps for you to buy, download, and install Windows 8. Click on the following link for more information http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows-8/upgrade-to-windows-8
Once you know it can be upgraded you can put in an order for the Windows 8 Pro upgrade pack. This can be downloaded straight from Microsoft and should cost £24.99. Click on the following link to buy. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows/buy
There is also the option to go for a Windows 8 upgrade disc, should you want a hard copy instead. That’s going to cost £49.98 and can be picked up from Amazon and other places here.
If you recently bought a Windows 7 PC and don’t want to stump up the fee for the upgrade, Microsoft offers a discount. Any Windows 7 computer bought between 2 June 2012 and 31 January 2013 can be upgraded to Windows 8 for just £14.99. Worth remembering.
The link for this £14.99 upgrade is as follows http://www.windowsupgradeoffer.com/en-GB
Upgrading to Win 8 from Win 7, XP and Vista
Microsoft has managed to make a very straightforward upgrade process for nearly all Windows users. Whether or not you go for the download or the disc option, the installation of Windows 8 is going to be almost the same.
It is worth noting that the downloadable version of Windows 8 will allow you to burn a DVD or create a bootable backup USB at no extra charge. So we say the downloadable version is the best route if you can go for it.
