Windows 8 upgrade? Tags: New Build Windows 7 Computer Windows 8 Systems Last response: June 12, 2012 10:33 AM in Systems Share Hilldawg11 June 11, 2012 10:14:11 PM Maybe this is in the wrong category, but I'm thinking of building a new computer. I'd get windows 7 of course, but if I buy the OEM edition, will I receive an upgrade to windows 8 for 15 dollars? Basically all I see on this promotion is that it applies to a purchase of a new PC. If this doesn't apply to custom builds, maybe I should be better off just buying a similarly equipped system. Google leads me to the vague "Buy a PC, get the upgrade for $15" but that's not solid enough for me. Anyone know for sure?

If you intend to build for win8 then simply put the release preview on your machine until the final release comes out this fall. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
