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, is your ticket. Prices start at $699.95.
