Windows 10 USB drives now up for pre-order

Microsoft Windows 10 Pro and Home on USB flash drives available on Amazon
Microsoft Windows 10 Pro
The Windows 10 Home and Pro USB flash drives can be pre-ordered from Amazon already, but they will apparently ship one month later after the official launch date.
Codrut Nistor,

Microsoft will unleash Windows 10 on July 29 as previously announced, but it looks like those who need it on a USB flash drive and not just as a system update from Windows 7/8.1 will have to wait a bit longer. Fortunately, both Windows 10 Home and Pro can be already pre-ordered from Amazon, although it appears that first shipments will not happen before the end of next month.

Earlier today, Neowin mentioned that both product pages mentioned August 16 as the release date of these products. In the meantime, the date has been changed to August 30. The prices are both as expected - $119.99 USD for Home and $199.99 USD for Pro.

Compared to the release of the update/digital download variants, this one-month delay may be caused by a lag in the production cycle of the drives, but Microsoft did not mention anything about this yet. As soon as Amazon changes the release date on the product pages, or at least Microsoft says something about it, we will get back to this topic as well, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
