Microsoft Offers Windows 8 Student Upgrade Starting Friday

Windows 8Microsoft on Wednesday announced a new deal for students looking to buy Windows 8. Starting on February 1st in the US, students can get the Windows 8 Pro upgrade edition online via the Microsoft Store for just $69.99. Microsoft also plans to host a Windows Campus Tour, which will kick off on February 18. The company will visit over 150 university campuses across the US, letting students try Windows 8, check out the latest tablets and PCs, and chat with “a team of Techsperts,” whatever the hell that means. If you’re interested (there will probably be giveaways, so you should probably drop in), the schedule is here. 49 additional countries will get the same deal (prices will likely vary a bit though and don’t expect campus tours), by March 19.
