During the preview Mario highlighted some of the tech gadgets you can find at Staples using the new Microsoft Windows 8 operating system including ultra notebooks, tablets and touch screen pcs.

Staples Microsoft Windows 8 Program

Since the Windows 8 OS offers different user options and has an environment different from other windows system, some new users might be confused how to use it or how to transfer files with their new gadgets. To help customers with adjusting to Windows 8, Staples has an exclusive “8 was Easy” program which includes free personalized training, free support and free startup with the purchase of any Windows 8-based computer or tablet. Consumers who purchase any Windows 8-based PC regularly priced at $699 and above will also receive free data transfer from their old computer.

Staples is also making it easy to upgrade to a new tablet or e-reader with two amazing offers.
  • Purchase a new Windows 8 or Windows RT tablet such as the the Samsung ATIV Windows 8 Tablet, and register to recycle and ship the old tablet for free. You will receive a prepaid Visa card up to $250 from Staples.
  • If you looking to surprise a loved one with the new Kindle Fire HD, you can recycle the old Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet and receive a $40 prepaid Visa card when you register.
