Windows 10 will cost $119 after free upgrade expires

You probably know it already from Microsoft aggressive, repeated messages, but the Windows 10 upgrade offer is about to expire (July 29 is the big day). So, unless you're planning on skipping the OS entirely, now's the time to get on it.




If you decide not to or you live under a rock and find out too late, the company says Windows 10 will cost you $119 (unless you buy a new computer, in which case it will come included).


Despite the off-putting tactics, the operating system remains a strong one, perhaps most of all for gamers who benefit from DirectX 12 and other technical advantages, so we encourage you to grab it free while you can.
