 Windows 8 Computers are already on Sale
 
 

What the heck? So much for a concerted launch event for Windows 8 on October 26th. HSN.com is already selling five Windows 8 PC models online, ready to ship now.

Windows 8 will be released on October 26th. Microsoft is hosting launch events around the globe to mark the occasion. However, ZDNet spotted over the weekend that HSN.com (Home Shopping Network) is already selling new Windows 8 laptops and all-in-one PCs. This is over two weeks before launch. HSN is a big retailer and not your rogue hardware online shop. ZDNet verified with HSN customer service that these Windows 8 machines are ready to ship right away. HSN is selling two Gateway laptops and an interesting Acer laptop with touchscreen. Additionally you can buy a Gateway and an Acer All-in-One PC.


So if you want to be the first on the block with a Windows 8 PC, HSN.com is your ticket. Prices start at $699.95.

Update:
According to a new report on The Verge, HSN is telling buyers that the Windows 8 PCs will ship early November. This is contradicting the ZDNet report. HSN should clear the confusion and state the shipping dates on the web site for the listed Windows 8 PCs.
