Ahead of Tuesday's Windows 10 Anniversary Update, Microsoft is highlighting discounts on a handful of laptops and tablets.
The lineup of PCs—available online and in stores—are reduced by $100 to $150, and in some cases more for students. Anyone already running Windows 10 will get the Anniversary Update for free. But if you're in the market for a new device, Redmond's sale could help you save a few bucks. Among the PCs on sale are:
Some restrictions apply, so be sure to read the fine print. Best Buy offers are valid through Aug. 6, while folks can take advantage of Microsoft Store deals until Sept. 24. Products available on Staples.com and select stores vary.
Students, meanwhile, can gear up for college with additional rebates of $150; Microsoft also promised savings up to $449 on Surface and Xbox One devices, as well as a Dell PC for $699 and a free TV with purchase.
For those new to the system, Microsoft Stores offer Windows 10 workshops to help customers understand and transition to the new Anniversary Update. The refresh comes with new features and improvements for consumers and enterprises—including Windows Ink, enhancements for Cortana, a "more power-efficient" Edge browser, better security, and new gaming experiences.
Nearly one year after its release, Windows 10 is running on more than 350 million devices, according to Microsoft. Users have collectively logged more than 135 billion hours on Windows 10 to date.
