Windows 8's release has been widely anticipated because it's Microsoft's most dramatic overhaul of the operating system in 17 years. It's also coming out at a time when PC sales have been slowing as more people rely on smartphones and tablets to surf the Web.
Microsoft developed Windows 8 with the mobile computing revolution in mind.
Samsung Electronics Co.'s Windows 8 desktops will come with touch screens and have suggested prices ranging from $749 to $1,699.
