A few days ago, it was reported that Dell will sell a number of new PC models
with Windows 7 still installed even after the launch of Windows 8 on October 26th. That includes PCs from their gaming themed Alienware lineup. Today, Neowin contacted a number of other large PC makers and asked them if they would also offer some PCs with Windows 7 pre-installed after the launch of Windows 8.
Customer service representatives from HP, Lenovo and Acer all told Neowin today over the phone they would offer at least some new PCs with Windows 7 installed after October 26th. The HP rep that we talked to could not give any specifics on which models would have Windows 7 still installed, saying only they would offer "two desktops and two laptops" for people who still wanted to have Windows 7.
