Windows 8 Notebooks Aren't Selling Partly Due To Price

While Windows 8 can be use and works fine with the mouse and keyboard, the selling point is the touch screen and they are not here yet. Surface 8 Pro does not comes until the end of January, Lenovo hybrid tablet/laptop did not or has not come out yet. The Acer, Samsung touch screen tablets and laptop came out late or were always out of stock.
Windows 7 is a excellent OS, so why upgrade to a new computer, or laptop if there is no touch screen, which is a strong reason to buy a new Windows 8 laptop.

I have used windows since 3.1 came out and Win 8 is the best reminder of if it's not broken don't fix it.
Windows 7 is still the best version by far. and Win 8 is an attempt to merge into a market that windows will struggle to compete in. Microsoft still does not understand the Tablet. after all these years you think they would of learned from their previous attempts.
Windows RT is worthless with out apps. and what can a Windows 8 pro tablet do better than a laptop or ultrabook with a touchscreen? they are both portable with good displays, battery life is about the same with some better exceptions on ultrabooks, and with a laptop you don't need to carry a keyboard with you. price? I would buy a laptop instead...
The price is a factor in poor sales but not the only one. Windows 8 is the reason.
One silver lining in this for Microsoft, by default Windows holds the biggest market share in PC's so if you need a new PC chances are it's going to have windows 8 on it.....

Microsoft MUST release a new and fixed Windows 9 as soon as possible for people to buy new PCs.
I and million of other users will NEVER use the abysmal, poorly designed and irritating Windows 8.
It is not the hardware.... it is all Windows 8 fault for the slow sales.
