Microsoft’s new Windows 8 operating system brings more changes for existing users than any release since Windows 95 — its minimalist, touch-input-optimized Start screen; the absence of the Start menu; a new app store; a redone interface in the desktop’s File Explorer windows. If you have visited one of the big chain stores recently you may have found that every computer they are selling now has Windows 8 installed on it and let’s face it, human nature just doesn’t like change. At least not that type of drastic change. But Windows 8 does not have to be an inevitable part of your next computer.
Custom Computers is still building custom built desktop computers as well as selling notebooks and portable computing devices with the Windows 7 operating system pre-installed on them. For those customers that just aren’t ready to tackle the changes to Windows 8 we still offer Windows 7 as an option. Actually we still sell more computer systems with Windows 7 than Windows 8.
If you purchased a new Windows 7 PC between June 2, 2012 and January 31, 2013 you have until February 28th to claim your Windows 8 Pro upgrade for only $ 14.99 then it will go up to $ 119.99 for Windows 8 Standard and $ 199.99 for Windows 8 Professional.
We are currently offering systems pre-installed with Windows 7 Pro that have a Windows 8 Pro license attached using downgrade rights which would allow you to upgrade to Windows 8 at any later date for no additional cost. This is a great option for those who want to keep the stable proven Windows 7 operating system and still leave the door open to upgrade to Windows 8 in the future.
