Last chance -- Windows 8 Pro $15 upgrade ends today

If you purchased a Windows 7 computer between 2 June 2012 and 31 January 2013 you are eligible for an upgrade to Windows 8 Pro for only $14.99. In fact, even if you did not actually purchase a computer, you can still get the cheap upgrade.

If you have not yet jumped on this offer then the clock is ticking down for you. Today is the last day to take the plunge. You will need to fill out some basic form information and then you'll receive a code in your email. Use that code to make your purchase and the price will drop to $14.99.

If you are still on the fence about switching to Windows 8, a move I recommend, then there is nothing to worry about -- grabbing the cheap deal does not mean you need to actually install the operating system today. You simply need to make your purchase now. You can run the installation tomorrow or next year.

It is unlikely that Microsoft will suddenly extend this offer, so today is the last opportunity to take advantage of a good deal. Tomorrow the same upgrade to Windows 8 Pro will run you just slightly more -- $199.
