Picking up that netbook but not wanting to deal with that Starter Edition of Windows 7? Read this.

Are you not entirely happy with the limitations of the Windows 7 Starter or Home Premium of that new computer that you were thinking about buying? Microsoft today announced that discounts are on the way.

Starting next week, those who buy a new computer have the option of picking up an Anytime Upgrade Package at a discount. Microsoft's Windows community manager Brandon LeBlanc wrote in a blog post:

Many of our retailer partners are taking advantage of Windows Anytime Upgrade with a brand new offer that will start next week. Beginning April 4th at participating retailers, people who buy a new PC will have an opportunity to add Windows Anytime Upgrade to their purchase at a special low price. In the U.S.:

    * Windows 7 Starter to Windows 7 Home Premium ERP $49.99 (versus everyday price of $79.99)

    * Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional ERP $79.99 (versus everyday price of $89.99)

This offer will be available at participating retailers and for a limited time only, (in the U.S. this offer will end July 3rd).

    Pff 10$ is not going to make me to upgrade it.
