Microsoft Pushes Windows 7 Update Discounts

Microsoft has some good news for consumers who buy a new PC with Windows 7 pre-installed and look to upgrade to a higher-end version of the operating system.

The company has said that participating retailers are to begin offering discounted pricing for Windows 7 Anytime Updates.

Datamation takes a look at the promotion.

In a move that may help buoy sales of Windows 7 during the final quarter of its fiscal year, Microsoft said that participating retailers will offer steep discounts on Anytime Upgrades starting Sunday.

Under the terms of the deal, beginning on April 4, customers who purchase a new PC pre-installed with a version of Windows 7 can upgrade to a more high-end edition at a discount from the company's normal upgrade offer.

The discounted upgrades will be available through participating retailers, according to a post on the Windows 7 Team blog.
