Microsoft Doubles New PC Discount Incentive To $100 As Windows XP Deadline Looms
That's a better offer than before, as you save $100 instantly, provided you're making the purchase from a Windows XP machine. Alternately, you can march into a brick-and-mortar Microsoft Store with an XP system in tow to claim your discount on a new PC purchase. One thing to keep in mind, however, is that the new PC must cost at least $599.
In addition to the savings, you also get 90 days of free premium phone, chat, and sales support, along with free data transfer via Laplink, a data migration service that Microsoft teamed up with to encourage XP users to upgrade.
New to the promotion is Microsoft's Surface 2 Pro family starting at $899. As further incentive to upgrade, for one week only you can get a free Touch Cover when you buy a Surface. If you're keeping count, that's $100 discount, 90 days of premium support, free data migration, and a free Touch Cover. Not a bad deal.
More details are available at the Microsoft Store.
