Microsoft has announced that you can pre-order PCs and other devices running the new OS from today.
Asus, Acer, Dell, HP, Samsung and Sony all have hardware up for pre-order, with Dell first out of the blocks with pricing information.
You can get your order in for the Dell XPS 12Windows 8 laptop-tablet hybrid, which will set you back from £999.
If you’re just in the market for Windows 8 software, you can also reserve your boxed copy of the upgrade to Windows 8 Pro from certain retailers today. This starts at $69.99 and you get one of five thrilling new illustrations, because that’s obviously why you’re buying.
Of course, if you bought a Windows 7 PC between June 2 2012 and January 2013, you’ll be able to nab a cheaper upgrade deal, just $14.99 USD (£15 or around AU$14.50).
