Windows 10 USB Stick Preorder At Discount From Amazon


Microsoft will release its Windows 10 OS on July 29 and the Home edition will cost $120, while the Pro edition will cost $200, but you will need to wait one more month until you’ll be able to download them from the internet. However, if you don’t want to wait that long, there is something you can do: pre-order the Windows 10 USB stick from Amazon.

Luckily, those who already have a license for Windows 7 or 8 will upgrade to Windows 10 for free, but one year later, they’ll need to purchase a copy of the new operating system, as well. We’re pretty sure that there are many users who can’t wait to get their hands on the new Windows 10, but they don’t have enough patience to wait until August 30, when the platform will be available worldwide. The good news is that Amazon will be selling a USB stick with Windows 10 and the pre-orders already started on the official store, but it’s curious that this stick can be ordered from Microsoft’s website and it’s not in retail stores either. But VentureBeat received assurances from Microsoft that the USB drives will appear “in retail channels shortly after launch”.

A physical copy of the new operating system is more advantageous than upgrading for free, because whenever you have problems with your computer and want to reinstall a clean copy of Windows, you’ll have a bootable copy at the ready.

There are many users who prefer to install Windows using a disc, but they must be very careful not to scratch or damage it, because otherwise, the disc will be useless. On the other hand, there are other users with ultra thin laptops who prefer to install Windows from a USB flash drive, because this method is safer.

Windows 10 brought back the Start menu, it added Cortana, the Windows Phone assistant and those who like the Alt-Tab keyboard combination to switch between running applications will see bigger thumbnails and a view icon in the taskbar, to find easier the application they’re interested in. The taskbar is subtle, the command prompt has been redesigned, there were made improvements to the Windows Explorer, there’s a new Edge browser, and the rest of new features you’ll discover once you’ll install the new operating system.
