If you're putting off buying an Ultrabook until Microsoft releases Windows 8, you may want to holler at Acer. In a statement today the PC maker announced that it will offer free upgrades to the the new operating system to anyone who buys an Aspire M3, M5, S3, or S5 Ultrabook between now and January 31, 2013.
Here's how it works: Microsoft is offering upgrades to Windows 8 Pro from Windows 7 for only $15. If you buy the upgrade, you will get a confirmation from Microsoft. Once you do, head to Acer's Windows 8 upgrade site, and fill out the application. When Windows 8 gets released you go back to the Acer site and claim your refund. It's a lot of work for $15, but if you were planning upgrading to Windows 8 anyway, it's a good deal.
