The Home Shopping Network (HSN) has two Gateway Windows 8 laptops for sale, and at an attractive price too. One can pick up a 15.6" model for just $649.95, or $699.95 for the 17.3" version. Both laptops sport an Intel Core i5 processor, and come with 4GB RAM accompanied by a 500GB hard drive. While both are identical with regards to specifications, neither sports a touch screen.
It's rather odd seeing a special offer being promoted on television for Windows 8 laptops, especially since the operating system hasn't officially launched yet. While no shipping details are provided, there's no indication that any delays are present. Should you be interested in making full use of Windows 8, you may wish to hold off for laptops that sport touch screens, but at this price it's not a bad deal if one's tight on cash.
The offer ends in just under nine hours, so be sure to get in quick should you wish to make a purchase. Remember that we've not had the opportunity to relay pricing for Windows 8 hardware that'll be released once the platform is in the wild, so take this how you will. The real question is: Windows 8 laptop or tablet?
