If you cannot wait till late summer to get your hands on Windows 10, you can now pre-order it with Windows 10 Discount. The much awaited Windows operating system will be launched on 29th July 2015. Some retailers are now taking pre-orders for Windows 10, so in case you already want to purchase the new operating system, you can do it today and also benefit from a small discount.
Newegg is one such retailer who is offering a small discount on the Windows 10 operating system. Newegg was one of the first retailers to offer Windows 10 when it put it up for preorder. The retailer also hinted at the pricing ahead of the official confirmation from Microsoft. The company now has come out with a tempting discount on the upcoming version of Windows.
- Home version Windows 10 will cost you just $89.99
- Professional version of Windows 10 will cost you $129.99
In order to avail the offer, Newegg is providing promo codes. They are:
- Promo code for Windows 10 Home version: EMCAVKR222
- Promo code for Windows 10 Professional version: EMCAVKR223
Note that Newegg requires you to enter a promo code for every purchase you make. So, in case you are preordering multiple copies, make sure you apply it every time.
According to these prices, Windows 10 will be $10 more expensive than Windows 8. Given the fact that there is a 3 year window between the launch of the two operating systems, it doesn’t really mean much of a bump in terms of pricing.
Roll Out Plan for Windows 10
According to Microsoft’s release plans, Windows Insiders – the folks who help the company develop Windows 10, will be the first to get the operating system when it reaches RTM.
Microsoft is yet to announce when exactly this is going to happen. However, Windows 10 is expected to reach RTM in late June or July; while general availability is reportedly prepared for July or August. As far as the release date is concerned, there are a lot of rumors swirling around the web and thus, it is hard to say if Newegg’s date is accurate or not.
Windows 10 will be offered as a free upgrade to Windows 7 and 8.1 users within the first year after launch. Not that only individual users will get it upgraded free of cost; enterprises will still have to pay for it.
This is a limited time offer. Better hurry up if you badly want to take advantage of the offer and purchase Windows 10 at a lower price. Other retailers too can be expected to come out with some promotional prices around launch date.
