More on Windows 8: Newegg has leaked pricing: a "Professional Upgrade" for enterprises will cost $70, an OEM version (used in new PCs) will cost $100, and a standalone copy of Windows 8 Pro will cost $140. Microsoft (MSFT) has already said consumers will be able to upgrade for $40. Given Microsoft's history of gradually raising Windows prices, the pricing is relatively aggressive. Windows RT, which ships with a tablet-friendly version of Office, reportedly costs OEMs $50-$65.

    lenovo and HP are giving away free win8 pro upgrades if buying windows 7 computers.
    sure beats the $70 price.
    Still, I don't think I would use it even for free.

     

    I hope MS continues to sell windows 7.

    Been using Windows 8 for over a month now. It's great. Well worth the money.
