Refurbished laptops OS upgrade?
Mar 9, 2013, 8:52 PM
So do you guys think that laptops that are sent for repairs are upgraded to Windows 8 automatically?
The same way when you send a phone in,you get it with the latest updates.
Well I want Windows 8,but do not want to pay for it.
Having to pay to upgrade from 7 seems like wasting money.
So if the laptops have Windows 8 drivers made,will they possibly have Windows 8 pre-installed?
The $30 upgrade feature is gone I believe.(expired)
Anyone gotten one like that?
I liked how the key is in the bios so you don't have to input the key anymore.
