If Microsoft convinced you to upgrade to Windows 10, but you decided to wait for Black Friday to get your hands on the company’s latest OS, we don’t actually have good news for you. Yes, the Redmond giant kicked off the Black Friday season on the Windows Store, but Windows 10’s price tag remains the same.
Which are the best Windows 10 and Microsoft Black Friday deals?
Windows 10 Black Friday deals
While Microsoft hasn’t offered any deals for its OS this year, we thought to offer you some alternatives.
If you go to this page, you’ll see a slightly nicer price tag than the one offered by the Redmond giant. However, keep in mind that this is the OEM version.
Windows 10 OEM is a full version of the OS but it’s not supported by Microsoft. The only difference is that an OEM license is bound to a single PC upon use.
This means that the license will only work once on a single device, and you will need to buy another one if you ever need to change your hardware (more specifically, the motherboard).
However, the prices of OEM keys are so low that by the time you actually change your laptop, a new version of WIndows is most likely going to appear.
Windows 10 Home
The perfect OS for the average user, Windows 10 is faster, better, and more stable than any of its predecessors.
Note: If you’re not interested in Windows 10 Home and want something with a few extra tools, then go ahead and get Windows 10 Professional
Microsoft Office Black Friday deals
Microsoft’s latest version of Office is also getting a bit of attention during Black Friday, as prices have dropped with a wide range of products.
Microsoft Black Friday hardware deals
