Want Windows 10 First? Dell Offering One-Day Shipping On Windows 10 PCs

Contrary to what we heard before, Windows Insiders are not the only ones who will get Windows 10 tomorrow. Dell announced that it will begin shipping pre-ordered Windows 10 products today to customers with one-day shipping. As a result, many of these users who pre-ordered will get Windows 10 before anyone else.

In North America over the last several weeks, Dell has had nearly 70 configurations of systems with Windows 10 available for pre-order. Those systems begin shipping today with one-day shipping. Users who ordered these systems will get the new systems with Windows 10 on the same day that Windows 10 will launch (tomorrow, July 29). The systems will also be available for sale from stores such as Best Buy, Microcenter and Staples starting tomorrow, so you can get Windows 10 with a new PC purchase, too.

In the rest of the world, Dell won't be shipping these systems for some time to come. It's likely that the demand for these systems on their initial release outpaced the supply, and the only way Dell could fill the orders was to focus on North America first. Although customers in China and the United Kingdom have been able to pre-order these systems for over a week now, they will not ship in these nations until a later date.

Although many are looking forward to Windows 10, companies are also preparing to help users overcome the difficulties associated with moving to a new OS. To try and ease this transition, Dell has hosted several Windows 10 videos on YouTube covering a variety of Windows 10 features. The goal is to avoid a strong customer backlash over the new OS. (Tom's Hardware has you covered on that front, too.)

If you can't wait to try out Windows 10 and aren't in the Windows Insider program, you might want to visit one of these retail locations to try Windows 10 for the first time.

    I'm sorry, but no one should be eager to get their hands on a new OS until at least the first service pack for it is released.

    That's a fallacy and you know it.

    I'm upgrading tomorrow :D

    Don't want Dell and don't want Windows 10...perfect marriage for two junks.

    So excited... to install Windows 10 on a separate HDD until I make sure it works.

    I've been using it since it was a baby and it was great, it is even better now. I am part of the Insiders group and it is a great OS.

    Also tried it out on Insider. Ran like an EA server and eventually crashed, then got stuck in an unbootable state. And before you suggest it, no, it wasn't my hardware.

    Heh, the pessimism is strong with this group. I'm optimistic. MSFT delivers an awesome OS every other try, so it's due. ;)

    From my experience on this final build, it is buggy and unstable. Good luck with it. Only device where it worked well was with Surface Pro 3 and old PC. System with X79 and newest X99 chipset absolutely hated it. Overall Windows 10 brings nothing...couldn't find a single feature worth upgrading to and then realized Windows 7 is still a keeper. I want to use applications like Visual Studio 2015, Adobe etc and play all games with great experience and right now Windows 10 doesn't offer that.

    Maybe it will in a year or so but all i know is that OS needs major update so i would guess no upgrade here until redstone and then i will give it a one more shot before i bury windows 10 for good.

    Let`s take your logic, and nobody will get the OS till the first Service Pack (there won`t be any for Win 10 anyway). How would they make the service pack if nobody uses the OS to report problems to be fixed ?

    Stop the useless smarta** hating for a change.

    Maybe you should look into how Windows 10 automatically shares your WiFi information with all your Facebook friends. And then if they ever log onto your network, all their friends get your WiFi info, too.

    I'll wait until all of the rubbish is exposed and cleaned up. Then I'll hop on board.
