Windows 8.1 with Purchase?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I want to build a new computer soon, however I was wondering if there is any sort of packages that would include a copy of Windows 8.1 along with component purchases anywhere? Seems like something that would be too good to be true but I thought I throw the question out there as when you buy a PC full built you get the copy thrown in.

Unless you buy it pre-built by some big name company Windows 8 is not going to come along with component purchases. It's currently available on pretty much 99% of laptops and pre-built systems. Besides that, Windows 8 is not all that great as there are still a lot of software that are not compatible with Windows 8. It's the only drawback of going Windows 8, older software may not work with Windows 8 without an update if it's even available. I tried Windows 8.1 last month it wasn't all that great but it did load faster than Windows 7 on normal platter HDD's.
