The new wave of laptops with Intel’s third generation Core processors has already started shipping with the Windows 7 platform. Although the Windows might be launching their new platform later this year the manufacturers have not mentioned anything about upgrading of these models to the Windows 8 platform.
Although no date has yet been decided by Windows for releasing the new platform, but some according to some analysts it might get released in October this year. Companies like Dell, Samsung and Acer are quiet and are not ready to comment on anything regarding the disclosure of any Microsoft related news.
Along with this Microsoft has also declined to comment on Windows 8 upgrade path. Till now only known fact is Microsoft plans to release multiple versions of the new OS, including Windows 8 and Windows 8 pro for x86 PC’s and tablets and windows RT for the ARM based devices.
Now as usual we can see that with the release of the new processor, or an upgraded hardware all of the manufacturers have released new devices into the market with the latest Ivy bridge processors. But as there are only a few months left for the release of Windows 8 which is expected to be having a lot of upgrades from the current Windows 7 a question arises in our minds. Will we have new devices again with Windows 8 or we will receive the updates of Windows 8 in these new devices with the latest Ivy Bridge processors.
