Solved Refurbished laptops OS upgrade? Tags: Laptops Windows 8 Last response: March 10, 2013 6:37 AM in Laptops & Notebooks Share jms209 March 9, 2013 8:52:50 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.
