Windows 8.1 clearance sales begin as Windows 10 looms

Gordon Mah Ung | July 21, 2015
When something new arrives, you blow out older inventory to make way for it, right? That's exactly what some PC vendors and stores appear to be doing with the release of Windows 10 just nine days away--blowing out Windows 8.1 machines at significant markdowns.

Still, as someone that launches into a Pavlovian response to the words "clearance," "sale" and "deal," it's worth checking out.

And who knows, maybe it's a way to give people who don't want Windows 10 as a service their last crack at Windows 8?  Maybe in six years, those still rocking Windows 8.1 machines will be flying Gadsden flags of how Windows 8.1 was the last "real" Microsoft OS.
