post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Where can you buy just the Windows 8 Key then download the ISO from? Does Amazon have something like this?

Wait you have to pay $120 just for a key? I thought if you did the digital download that it was much cheaper. Dam looks like I'll be on my windows 7 for a long long time...

You must be talking about the Windows 8 Upgrade Offer:

http://blogs.windows.com/windows/b/bloggingwindows/archive/2013/01/04/reminder-get-windows-8-pro-for-14-99-through-the-windows-upgrade-offer.aspx

Microsoft also offered an upgrade program for those purchasing new PCs pre-loaded with Windows 7 Home Basic, Home Premium, Professional, or Ultimate between June 2, 2012 and January 31, 2013—in which users could digitally purchase a Windows 8 Pro upgrade for US$14.99. Several PC manufacturers have offered rebates and refunds on Windows 8 upgrades obtained through the program on select models, such as Hewlett-Packard (in the U.S. and Canada on select models), and Acer (in Europe on selected Ultrabook models), according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_8.

Unfortunately this program expired back in February and thus we are now back to the "regular" prices for Windows 8.

I dont think I need to say it but I will anyhow. Be very careful following anyone's advise that not only cant be made public but based on a 2 second 20 foot glance might be either illegal or at best case "gray area". If there was a straight up way to get Windows 8 for $14 not only would Microsoft be selling it for that, but we all would have done it. Grandpa always said "If its too good to be true, it usually is"
