Dell will keep selling PCs with Windows 7 after Windows 8 launch

Posted on Monday, October 15 2012 @ 16:36:25 CEST by

Dell announced last Friday that it will keep offering Windows 7 after Microsoft launches Windows 8 on October 26th, but only for business and gaming customers. Dell director Alison Gardner said the company will offer Windows 7 as long as it is allowed to. Both Windows 7 and 8 will be offered as options on the Latitude, OptiPlex, and Precision brands, and customers of Dell's Alienware desktops and laptops will also be able to stick to Widnows 7.
"We're still moving our business customers from [Windows] XP to Windows 7, Gardner said.

The company is continuing to recommend that customers migrate to Windows 7 and that those who need touch capabilities on PCs adopt Windows 8, Gardner said.

"The OS migration for a large company is no small feat. We make it easier but it takes some planning and work," Gardner said.

For gamers and enthusiasts buying Dell's Alienware laptops and desktops, Windows 7 will be offered as an OS option.

"For Alienware customers, they know what they want and we give them that choice," Gardner said.
