Microsoft has listed both Windows 8.1 and Windows 8.1 Pro up for pre-order on their web store today. The official launch date of Windows 8.1 is still about two weeks away but now you can reserve your copy on DVD beforehand. If you’re running Windows 8 already, Windows 8.1 will be a free update, which can be downloaded from the Windows Store on October 17th.
Those looking for upgrade pricing will be disappointed as Windows 8.1 will only be sold as a full version. This means you can use it to upgrade from Windows 7 or do a clean installation on your machine. Windows 8.1 costs $119 while Windows 8.1 Pro will cost $199.
