If you are purchasing new Windows 8 PC then, you should be careful while selecting Windows 8 Edition. I am saying this because not all PCs come with Windows 8 PRO and you may be paying uselessly on basic edition. Though you can upgrade or downgrade Windows 8 edition easily but why not save money by purchasing correct version at first place.

For India however, it will be interesting to see how the pricing of Windows 8 will differ with currency conversion. Looking at the current scenario, I expect Windows 8 price in India not to get beyond Rs. 2500 at least during Promotional period (If Microsoft decides to do it).

I am waiting for online retailers like Flipkart to bring Windows 8 soon so that purchase becomes easy. Will you upgrade to Windows 8?

Upgrading for $39 is good offer.
