Windows XP is officially being dropped from Microsoft’s support on Sunday April 6th, only two days from now. When that day hits millions of people will be more vulnerable to viruses than ever before. Luckily Best Buy is going to help out. The retail store is offering a minimum of $100 for any Windows XP machine that you can use towards a brand new Windows PC, Apple computer, or Chromebook.

Since this deal doesn’t hit stores until Sunday, Best Buy hasn’t released any web pages about it. But with this deal you can score machines like the Acer C720 Chromebook for a mere $99, a great deal by every meaning of the word. The credit come in the form of $75 towards a new computer, and then a $25 (or more) Best Buy gift card. Depending on the condition and specifications of your trade-in you could get much more.

If you’re computer runs Windows XP, take this as advice. You need to take advantage of this deal. Since Windows XP will be killed off on Sunday April 6th, you’ll have until then to use it. If you are planning to take advantage of this deal, keep in mind that you will need to wipe your hard drive before bringing it in to Best Buy. And don’t forget to keep an eye on Best Buy’s computer deals over the weekend as they could change from now until Sunday.



Goodbye Windows XP!
