Windows 8 laptops can't command Windows 7 prices

John P. Mello Jr. | April 8, 2013
Tepid enthusiasm for Windows 8 is bad news for Microsoft, but it's good news for laptop shoppers.

He predicted that the next generation of Windows 8 hardware will be a lot better than the first systems running the OS. The processors will be more efficient and the machines will be lighter and cheaper.

"Typically, the first hardware out with a new operating system feels rushed," he said. "The second and third waves tend to be more refined."

"Folks that really want Windows 8 probably should wait until the second half of the year when the new stuff comes out," he added.
