At least one Walmart has put Windows 8 on sale before the official Microsoft launch on October 26. According to a tip sent in by a Verge reader, his local Walmart had several copies of the boxed Windows 8 Pro variety on display, and with a price of $69.99 for the upgrade.
The tipster didn't pick up a copy, though Walmart employees did inform him that they could be purchased. Curiously, the employee added that the store just wasn't fully promoting them. Odd, considering that they were on display such as they were.
Now the question is, has anyone purchased one yet? Furthermore, how many other Walmarts or other stores already have the discs out and for sale? If any of our readers find Windows 8 on sale in a local shop, be sure to let us know!
