windows 8 walmart

Windows 8 isn't launching until Oct. 26, but fresh boxes of Microsoft's new operating system are already appearing at Walmart locations. We already know the Windows 8 price options, but a Walmart shopper named Aaron who provided the above image to The Verge said the Windows 8 Pro upgrade will cost $69.99 from Walmart.

Walmart isn't even keeping these boxes hidden and even informed Aaron that, should he wish, he could have purchased a copy. Retailers are only supposed to be offering pre-order options for the operating system right now, but if you want an early copy we suggest checking your local retailers to see if anyone else has accidentally slipped on the release date.
