Dell is determined to be one of the first companies to have Windows 10 computers ready to go. The company says if you pre-order a PC configured with Windows 10 software today, it’ll be eligible for free next-day shipping, which means it could arrive at your door on July 29th — the day Windows 10 officially launches.

Almost 70 different Dell laptops, 2-in-1 notebooks, and desktops are available from, and the company says more than 50 systems will be available from other retailers starting July 29th.

Of course, you don’t need to order a new PC to get Windows 10. It’s available as a free upgrade for most users running Windows 7 or later. But Microsoft will be rolling out the update in phases, so not everyone who registered for the free upgrade will receive the update right away.

If you have a computer that’s not eligible for the free upgrade, you can also buy a Windows 10 license for $100 and up.

Microsoft’s new operating system heralds the return of the Start Menu, the introduction of the Cortana voice assistant and search utility for desktop and notebook users, the new Microsoft Edge web browser, and a number of other changes. For the most part, the OS feels like a cross between Windows 7 and Windows 8… in a good way.

HP also says it will deliver Windows 10 computers to customers starting July 29th.

  1. Hmmm i think i will wait until microsoft release Service pack 1 for Win10. Too much nightmares already with the utterly failure stupid Win8 and Win8.1.

    And i looked at the screen of Win 10 , it does resembled his older failure brother LOL. i guess microsucks didn’t learned from their past mistake this time.

    1. i don’t think there will be “service packs” going forward since MS will be pushing out updates all the time…

  2. Shipping Windows PCs to my door?

    You should know I don’t respond well to threats.
    You should also know that I don’t have any need for a Windows PC.

    What I do have are a very particular set of skills.
    Skills I have
    acquired over a very long career.
    Skills that make me a nightmare for
    people like you.

  3. I had hoped to wait until the holidays to get a good deal on a Win 10 machine. However the old Windows box it will replace started coughing up blood several days ago. That machine is old enough to have an implicit DNR. My time table for replacing it was escalated to ‘immediately’. I shopped the HP/Dell/Lenovo offerings for on-your-doorstep July 29th delivery machines but didn’t find anything too compelling.

    In the end I ordered some hardware and a downloadable full Win 10 Home version. I’m thinking the servers won’t be busy at all to download that tomorrow. LOL.
    Here’s hoping for a nice, clean, easy, build.

    1. I’m unconvinced Windows 10 will be as tolerant of Frankenputers as prior releases. Microsoft has already said future updates and what constitutes “end if life” for a system running Windows 10 will be tightly bound to their work with major OEMs, mainly in the area of rapidly evolving UEFI.
