I passed by BEST yesterday looking for a headset and found they’ve already started selling Windows 8. Keep in mind this is an upgrade pack, so you need to have Windows XP/Vista/7 in order for you to use it. I’m guessing most stores in Kuwait started selling Windows 8 for the same price of KD 19.
I found the price too expensive because it’s being sold online by Microsoft for $39.99 (~KD 11). All you need to do is download Windows 8 Assistant and follow through with the steps. If you purchased a device with Windows 7 between 2nd June 2012 – 31 January 2013, you are eligible to buy an upgrade for $14.99 (~KD 4). Just go to the Windows 8 Offer website.
I guess If you have a slow internet connection or can’t wait you can purchase it locally since the price difference is KD 8. I installed Windows 8 yesterday and so far it has been rocky, none of the Windows 8 applications work. Some applications that previously worked don’t any more. So I recommend you wait a bit before upgrading.
