Microsoft is Giving Out Free Laptops if They Can't Upgrade Your Laptop to Windows 10

Windows 10 free upgrade is closing in just two weeks and Microsoft is trying another strategy to get people on board. In a desperate move, Microsoft wants to give you a free laptop if their technicians cant upgrade your current laptop to windows 10. If you bring your laptop to a Microsoft Store and their techs are unable to upgrade you within the day, they will give you a free Dell Inspiron 15 laptop. Not too shabby, right? Well, there is some fine print.

It must be inside of an actual Microsoft Store. There are roughly 100 such locations in the U.S. You must check in the eligible device at the Answer Desk before noon. And the offer is only as good as supplies last, or until July 29.

Not all laptops are eligible, either. Yours must power on, hold a charge and be "in fully functional, working condition without broken/missing components, cracked display/housing, liquid damage, modification(s) or have device warranty seal broken." If yours is not, Microsoft will take your existing laptop and give you $150 toward a new PC purchase.

If Microsoft is able to upgrade your old laptop, you will not get the new Dell. But, Microsoft will still give you $20 off on Office 365 Home. If you don't get upgraded before the 29th, Windows 10 Home will cost you $119 and Windows 10 Pro will cost you $199.

For companies, Microsoft has introduced a new monthly subscription fee for Windows 10. For Windows 10 Enterprise E3 businesses will pay $7 per user per month. This is currently limited to big companies, but there's nothing to say that someday a similar Windows 10 couldn't be rolled out as a service to consumers as well. But only time will tell that. Have you upgraded yet? Will you be?
