Hi all

Ok i saw Windows 8 upgrade available at the warehouse for $99, what i want is the downloadable version of the upgrade which is supposed to be half the price, but i can't find it anywhere on the MS site

is the downloadable version of the upgrade being held back till the 26th (like the full version) or am i just missing something?

The Warehouse aren't allowed to sell the upgrades until the 26th either but displaying and advertising has been allowed since the 12th.
Microsoft wouldn't be too happy of they were selling them already.

You have to wait till the 26th. It will be downloadable from MS then. In the mean time, here are some q&a's about it here:-

The warehouse and anyone else can actually sell Windows 8 today 23rd.

BUT As per the supplier instructions:

The pricing for the OEM is available from some suppliers, but not for the Upgrade (yet)
