I know this isn't a deal per se, but for the people that has been holding off or has recently purchased refurbished windows 8 computers, the free windows 10 upgrade ends today.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Free tools to disable Win10 nag screens

If you upgrade to Windows 10 today and allow it to activate, your current computer will have a digital entitlement stored on Microsoft's servers. You may then use the built-in
recovery feature within 30 days to revert back to Windows 7 or 8.1 []. You may then upgrade back to Windows 10 later and your digital entitlement on that machine will activate Windows 10 again. If you make substantial changes to the hardware in your computer like replacing the motherboard your digital entitlement may no longer work.

I love WIndows 10!
Much better layout than Windows 8. Works a lot smoother.

Debatable if it is or isn't, to some it may be. On top of that, half of the PSA's I've seen were listed in the deals section. You could try constructive criticism next time.

There's a way to save a copy your hard drive image, install/upgrade to windows 10, ensure you have a digital activation thing, and then replace it back with the previous windows. I did that on two computers

Just to negate some of the thumbs down I gave a thumbs up! A free upgrade to Windows 10 can be considered a "deal" (if you like Windows 10) and although I imagine most will have upgraded by know, I'm sure there will be some who may want to take advantage of this before it goes.

Even if anyone isn't sure, may as well upgrade now then reinstall an earlier Win version if they want - then they always have the opportunity to go to Win 10 in the future.

OP, you need to change title to:
Today is the last day to upgrade to spyware 10

I bet Windows 7 and 8.x keys continue to work to activate Windows 10 installs (Threshold 2). I can't see Microsoft changing this any time soon. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if the upgrade is still available, too... even if they don't promote it as hard.
