WS Review Product Description

Windows XP Is OVER. Finished. Done.

Microsoft Will Not Support It Anymore...

That Makes It a BIG Target for Hackers & Problems!

"But Steve, WHERE Do I Get Windows 8?!"

RIGHT HERE!

It's Faster.

Easier.

Safer.

And Has a TON Of New Features!

Don't Get Left In The Windows XP "No Man's Land!"

Use The Upgrade Assistant To See How Easy This Is!

It Tells You Everything: Eligibility, Data You Can Bring Over, Etc!

 

Windows 8 - It's Time To Switch!

Look, I know how it is. If you're anything like I am, you didn't want to switch either. Whether you're on XP, Vista, 7, or something else... you've gotten 'comfortable' with it.

The problem is, when the new Windows comes out, the old versions get left in the dust.

It's pretty bad even for the recent operating systems. Windows 7 and Vista? Sure, Microsoft still gives them some baseline support, but new software and updates are going to make your programs, games, or utilities stop working.

At BEST they'll keep working like they did... but not get anymore updates. That means bugs and errors won't get fixed and their support lines might just tell you it's time to update.

But if you're on XP... man, it gets bad.

I hate to be all doom and gloom, but Microsoft ending support for XP means a lot of things.

Most importantly, it means hackers KNOW they have a wide-open door right into your computer!

Without any updates, those security holes won't get patched. And even the anti-virus companies won't be able to help.

BUT ENOUGH ABOUT THE NEGATIVES!

Windows 8 is AWESOME. And You're About To Find Out First Hand!

You've probably been hearing all over about Windows 8. Heck, we did an instructional guide on. We have articles left and right about it.

It's definitely the new hot thing and for good reason! It's INCREDIBLE!

First off: it's faster.

How much faster? Well, I timed it.

When I booted up my Windows 7 machine, it took anywhere between 2-3 minutes to get to what I consider "usable." Sure, it technically booted up faster, but it was still doing stuff and going through those groggy start up moments.

With Windows 8? I pressed my power button and was ready to go in under 30 seconds.

And that's just startup! EVERYTHING is faster with Windows 8! The interface lets you put EVERYTHING you need right on your home screen.

E-mail
Weather
Contacts
Financial Tickers
Reminders
Calendars
Internet
Music/Video/Photos
Any Of Your Favorite Apps!
All Your Frequently Used Software!

Just take a look!

ALL this stuff is 100% ready to go right when it loads up!

(Oh, and just for those who aren't into change: you can have Windows 8.1 go RIGHT to the desktop and it will look JUST like Windows 7/Vista/XP! Other than it being faster, more efficient, better protected, and a ton of other benefits... you won't even NOTICE the difference! Sweet!)

Type It And It's THERE!

I'm loving this part of Windows 8. If you're on the home screen, you can actually just start typing words and Windows 8 will search automatically!

As soon as I boot up, I can type in "Internet" and Internet Explorer comes up! Type in "photos" and it takes you right to your photo viewer!

You don't even have to open anything special! Just literally start typing!

I didn't even have to finish typing the word! How's THAT for intuitive design?!

Speaking of Internet, the brand new Internet Explorer with Windows 8 got upgraded too!

Faster browsing, faster loading, and a TON of bonus features. It's impossible for me to get into every little detail, it's just amazing!

The Easiest Upgrade Possible!

Windows 8 isn't just easy to use, it's easy to install!

The Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant tells you EVERYTHING you need to know!

Not only does it help you figure out what's compatible, what isn't, what you'll be able to keep...

...IT EVEN MAKES SURE YOUR COMPUTER IS WINDOWS 8 READY!

I can't recommend this enough!

There's nothin' as disappointing as getting some new software only to find out it doesn't work with your computer. Make sure you use that upgrade assistant to check your computer! It's Microsoft's OFFICIAL system checker and it's very simple to download!

You can download it directly from Microsoft right here!

(Afterwards though, make sure to head back to our store to grab your copy of Windows 8!)

One Killer Price - Prepare Yourself For This!

A brand new copy of Windows 8 Professional is around $130!

This upgrade? IT'S ONLY $113.99!!!

And you know this comes with FREE US SHIPPING!

That's the cheapest way you'll get to upgrade your PC to Windows 8 Professional... probably ever!
