    Well for the last few days I've been seeing the price's of Windows 8 being $39.99 and $69.99.
    Its confusing me. Are these price's for online or in stores?

    I've been looking around and I can't seem to find anything out.
    I would like to really know.

    Latest Friday this week, you go shopping and find your best price, check some dealers on the Internet or ... use KSM ( which is "mostly" free of charge) :D
    I'm typing this just because I know, that someone who writes in this forum prefers to get stuff at a "certain" price. Am I right? :D

    So those are Online price's? Thats a little disappointing. I was hoping that was the in store price.

    Yeah I'm going be doing that this weekend. to see what the real in store price would be where I live.

    Yeah I would like to get Windows 8 at the "certain" Price. But it'll be awhile before I see something will give a permanent activation Method.

    Well I would like to own a Legit Copy of Windows 8 with the box and everything. I'm a sucker for those box's and books :p

    But these prices are only for the upgrade Versions. The SB Pro Version cost 130€ here in Germany. Does somebody know if i could use the upgrade Versions to upgrade a Windows 7 that been activated with a loader? That would be great so you can wash your windows into a legal Version

    You can buy a "system builder" DVD copy that's a boxed full version. Currently $99.99 at Amazon, regular retail price $140.99.

    I'm sure that you could use the Windows Upgrade Version on a Windows 7 that has the loader.... But I couldn't really say that it could. I haven't tried it.
    Well I think they are not selling physical box's in China (I could be wrong about that). I already know that A Walmart close to where I live has Empty box displays out showing it'll be here the 26th.

    I am defiantly with the "certain" price option its no big deal if i have to run a vm kms every 180 day's better to use the server you have created rather than leaving it on hdd doing nothing for ever
