Windows 10 is set to be released on July 29th, and we’re only a few weeks away from the big launch of Windows 10. Some OEMs has already started taking pre-orders for PCs pre-installed with Windows 10, and today, Microsoft stated that the company will be offering an on-site upgrade to Windows 10 to new PC buyers.

The company is also working quickly to stock the shelves with Windows 10 devices. And if you’re wondering about Surface devices with Windows 10, you’ll be glad to know that Microsoft is also working hard to stock Surface devices with Windows 10 pre-installed. Here’s the company’s full statement (provided to WC):

“As with any Windows launch, we are working quickly to stock shelves with Windows 10 devices, including Surface. While you can expect to see Surface devices running Windows 10 on shelves soon, Windows 8.1 devices still provide an exceptional experience and are easily upgraded to Windows 10 for free. Additionally, all Microsoft Stores have the ability to upgrade new devices to Windows 10 on site.”

If you’re planning to pick-up a new PC from the Microsoft Store, you may be able to get a device that comes with Windows 10 pre-installed – and if it doesn’t, you’ll be able to get a free upgrade to Windows 10 on-site. Are you planning to pick up a new Windows device from the Microsoft Store soon?
