    Hey,
    So tomorrow is the last day to get Windows 8 for $40 for the PC
    I've been considering getting it since I really like my 8x and want my computer and my phone to be more in sync, but I'm one of the people who have the "if it aint broken, dont fix it" mentality
    and I have no problems with sticking around with Windows 7, I don't feel like getting such a diff OS mid way through the semester
    Either way I want to jump on the deal, if i buy it can I not install it immediately and just have it on my computer or a disk until the summer comes around?
    Also does Window 8 come with Microsoft Office and all the other necessities that an average student will need?

    Moved to Windows 8 forum, since this is about desktop Windows 8.

    Hey thanks for the replies!
    I didnt end up getting the deal, mostly because I've got my eyes now on the Surface Pro by Windows, might buy that instead during the summer and keep my regular non-touchscreen lenovo laptop for more traditional stuff..

    Thanks again though!
