Microsoft and PC vendors to offer free Windows Vista upgrade coupon

Posted on Friday, August 11 2006 @ 03:23:23 CEST by


Microsoft and some of world's biggest PC vendors have reached an agreement to promote Windows Vista by offering PC buyers a free upgrade coupon, as a way of encouraging them to buy a Vista-capable computer as early as possible.
With the coupon offer to kick off in October, prospective buyers who have planned to purchase a Vista-enabled PC in the first quarter of 2007 when the new OS is launched, will be encouraged to take up a Vista-capable PC in advance, the sources asserted.

Ray Chen, president of Compal Electronics, confirmed the coupon offer at a company investor conference held yesterday, stating that the free upgrade coupon, together with the availability of Intel's 64-bit-enabled Merom processors, will help boost demand for new PCs in the fourth quarter of this year as well as in the first quarter of 2007.
