Microsoft will release Windows 8 and Windows RT on October 26th, and that’s when you’ll be able to find dozens of laptop, tablet, and desktop computers with Microsoft’s latest operating systems pre-installed.

Or you could order one today from

Gateway 23" Windows 8 all-in-one desktop

HSN is offering 3 laptop and 2 all-in-one desktop computers with Windows 8. All 5 devices are Acer or Gateway computers (Acer owns the Gateway brand).

One of the laptops and one of the desktops include touchscreen displays for use with the new touch-friendly Windows 8 user interface. But those are the most expensive models of the bunch, with starting prices of $1000.

ZDNet reports that Microsoft has asked HSN to pull the listings (which hasn’t happened yet), and The Verge reports that while you can order one of the computers today, it won’t ship until early November.

So if you actually want to get your hands on a Windows 8 computer, there will probably be better options if you just wait a few weeks.
