According to Acer, the next version of Microsoft's Windows operating system will be launched on October 23rd, and not the January 2010 date Microsoft has been previously suggesting. Acer claims its new all-in-one Z5600 PC will be available with Windows 7 from October 23rd.
"23rd October is the date the Windows 7 will be available. There is a 30 day upgrade time so that customers don't wait to buy a new computer, so if you buy during that 30 day period, you'll get a free upgrade to Windows 7", Bobby Watkins, Acer's UK MD told Pocket-lint.
Talking about their new all-in-one model, the Z5600 PC, specifically designed for Windows 7, the company revealed that the Asus Eee Top rival, will actually be shipping at the end of September to be in stores for people to "touch and feel".
