Windows 8.1 now available


Windows users who have been awaiting the update for Windows 8 will have to wait no longer, because today is the day that Windows 8.1 is available for download by all users. As is always the case with updates, Windows 8.1 will include plenty of new features and tweaks that they hope will enhance the user experience.

One of the best upgrades will be similar to that of iOS 7, where users can automatically set their apps to update.

Windows 8.1 should show up as a pending update after launching the Store app, and you can begin the update in the click of a button.

The cost of the update is $119.99 for the regular version and $199.99 for Windows 8.1 Pro.

You may also be lucky enough to find the DVD version of the update available at your local store.

Many people are wondering about how the return of the infamous start button will affect Windows 8.1, so we are looking forward to the reaction once more and more people begin to use the update.
