Amazon preps for Windows 7 launch-day delivery
Amazon.com will offer release-date delivery on Windows 7 software and Windows 7 PCs, the online retailer announced on Monday.
According to Amazon, customers who pre-order Windows 7 will receive the operating system on October 22, its launch day. The company is also providing launch-day delivery for more than 250 computers from HP, Dell, Acer, and other PC vendors that come pre-installed with Windows 7. Those computers are available for pre-order on the site.
Amazon followed its announcement with details surrounding Windows 7's success so far. Windows 7 was a bestseller on Amazon for two weeks following its original pre-order availability earlier this year, according to the company. Amazon also said that, so far, Windows 7 has attracted more orders than both Windows Vista and Windows XP combined at the same point in their availability.
