Yes, PC World has infected our brains with its jingle and now it wants to make recompense by selling us Microsoft’s latest operating system. (Please hold the “two wrongs don’t make a right” jokes, Apple fans).
The company says it’s the first to announce a pre-order service in UK and the software will be available at more than 50 per cent off the recommended retail price. Hell, it’ll even throw in a free PC health check worth £29.99.
Pre-orders are available at the PC World website from the 15th July, guaranteeing any UK buyer a copy of the new operating system when it arrives on shelves in October.
“Priced from just £49.99, the Windows 7 Premium operating system is available via the pre-order service at 66 off the recommended retail price of £149.99,” a PC World spokesman said.
“Windows 7 Pro will be available for only £99.99 when pre-ordered, a discount of 54 per cent.”
The bundled free PC health check will then be available via the TechGuys at any PC World store nationwide, using a 50 point program including a spyware and virus scan and free consultation and advice on improving PC performance.
