Just built a new PC and was hoping I would find some deals on Windows 8 but haven't found any yet. My little brother got W8 for only $39.99 at Best buy last year but now prices have gone way up.

Any help would be awesome. Thanks.

I got it for retail price. I think it was under $100, is that not cheap enough? Worth it imo. If you want to find next to free cheap, Google will tell you where & how.

If you're in university/college you may be able to get it cheap through your school.

Honestly just get Windows 7. Not only is it cheaper but its a higher quality OS. Windows 8 is basically just Windows tablet OS.

I might do that. I can get 8 for $70 for being a student though so I'm deciding between the two.

Any chance you are studing somewhere that offers the Microsoft Dreamspark program? If yes, maybe you can get a free license if they offer the Premium service, I just got my W8.1 using it.
