Pay more on an upgrade to Windows 8 Pro from Windows 8 compared to upgrade from Windows XP/7Posted: October 25, 2012
Microsoft posted details on upgrading Windows 8 to Windows 8 Pro without a reinstall. The upgrade will also include Windows Media Center license.
The upgrade comes at a price and seems to be higher compared to upgrading from your older Windows versions, ie. Windows XP or Windows 7.
Windows 8 to Pro upgrade will cost you around $69.99. Where as an upgrade from Windows XP or 7 to Windows 8 Pro will be only $39.99 .
So if you are getting a new Desktop or Laptop with Windows 8, you have to shell out more compared to those upgrading their existing older versions to new Windows 8. Doesn’t look like a fair deal.
