First Windows 8 laptops on sale… by Home Shopping Network?


Microsoft is still to officially launch Windows 8 on the 26th October, but it seems the first Windows 8 laptops are already on sale, and from an unexpected source.

The Home Shopping Network is offering two Gateway Windows 8 laptops, a 15.6 inch version for $649.95 and a 17.3 inch version for $699.95. The offer is set to expire soon and no delivery date was announced.

Both laptops have Core i5 processors, 4 GB RAM and a 500 GB hard drive, and neither have a touch screen.

This is likely the form factor the vast majority of Windows 8 hardware will be sold, at least in the first few years, but it is of course interesting to see it arrive so soon.
