Microsoft said Thursday that more than 1,000 PCs, including tablets designed for Windows 8, will be available.
If youre in the market for a new PC or tablet, PCWorld has details of many of those Windows 8 devices, including tablets from Acer, Asus, and Microsoft; Ultrabooks from Dell,Gigabyte, and Lenovo, a quirky all-in-one from Sony, and even regular desktops from computer makers such as Hewlett-Packard.
The final version of the Windows Store is open for business when you use a non-preview version of Windows 8. At launch, the Windows Store has a fairly good selection of apps, but no real surprises.
During the Windows 8 kickoff, Microsoft Windows chief Steven Sinofsky said the Windows Store at launch would have more apps than any other competing app store did during their respective launches.
When I heard Sinofskys comments, it sounded to me like he was finding a polite way to say, We dont have that many apps. And that seems to be exactly the case.
