Why You Should Delay Your PC Purchase For Windows 8
If you are in the market for a new PC or soon will be, it will work in the long run if you wait it out a few more months till Windows 8 launches. Windows 8 will be launching in October this year, according to the latest rumors, and with it will be coming a host of new software and hardware features that PC buyers will miss out on if they invest in a new rig right now. Besides, even if you don’t want the new thing, this release will also force down prices of the existing PCs which will then be a generation older. So it will work out in your favor anyway.
So if you can afford to wait and buy, you will be able to take advantage of the two major changes in the PC world. The first is Intel’s Ivy Bridge. Though officially it is already out there, Ivy Bridge is actually waiting on Windows 8 to come in to its full form. PCs designed to work with this new processor will only come to the market this Fall with Windows 8.
The second change is touch. Windows 8 is designed to be touch-first (at least its Metro side is) and this will make PC makers innovate on the kind of PCs that they are making. It will force them to integrate touch in to their systems and thus pave way for a new live of software applications. Hopefully, this whole system will result in new and innovative tools that you would want to use. And all of this will happen by the end of this year.
So if you can afford to wait, you will be able to use Windows 8 on the right kind of hardware and it just might make things that much better than the current installs of Windows 8 which are running on non-optimized hardware.
