Now that Windows 8 has finally arrived in the market, it is time to check out how much will the new operating system cost for consumers. Turns out that the pricing for Malaysia is still the same as per what we reported earlier.

By that, we actually mean the existing Windows Upgrade Offer program which is for new PC owners to upgrade their Windows 7 to Windows 8 Pro as well as the upgrade program for existing Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 users. Both promos will end on 31 January 2013 in which the pricing will then be changed to the much heftier standard pricing as what you can see in the summary below:

For those who are wondering, the Windows 8 Pro Pack is basically the upgrade pack for a standard Windows 8 which will give users access to the additional features that are exclusively available on Windows 8 Pro such as data protection, Remote Desktop connection and domain join. On top of that, users will also receive Windows Media Centre together with the pack.

Looking at the standard pricing of the operating system, we got to say that it is pretty high to our liking although the promo pricing are rather good. Hence, if you planning to obtain Windows 8 for your PC, we reckoned that there is no better time to do that other than now.
