As I’m sure many know by now,Windows 8 is right around the corner, and thus it’s the perfect time for OEMs to start running around and offering updated models with the new operating system. Microsoft was one of the first to begin pre-orders on a Windows 8 (well, Windows RT, but same product family) machine with their Microsoft Surface, and now today Dell has announced that you can pre-order a computer running Windows 8 as well.
Dell is offering the Inspiron 15R, Inspiron 17R, XPS 13 Ultrabook, XPS 12, XPS 15, Inspiron 15R Special Edition, Inspiron 17R Special Edition, XPS 14 Ultrabook, XPS 13 Ultrabook, and XPS 12 notebook computers for pre-order today. There are also some Windows 8-based traditional desktop computers available in a wide variety of price points.
This is it, folks. The time of Windows 7 is over, the time of Windows 8 has officially come.
