Officeworks drops Windows 8 prices further

Retailer Officeworks is sticking it to competitors by lowering its asking price for Windows 8 Pro to $48.72.

This comes as a response to competitors, such as Harvey Norman and JB Hi-Fi, who dropped the advertising price for Windows 8 to $58 as a special launch discount.

"Along with being one of the first companies to offer it to Australians on pre-order, we also guarantee that our copies of Windows 8 will be sold at the lowest price," Officeworks technology business manager, Toby Watson, said.

Watson added that the discount is permanent.

He said that customers who find a cheaper advertised price on Windows 8 that is in stock with a competing retailer, will be eligible for a 5 per cent discount.
