HP wants you to buy Windows 7 powered computers

HP logoLeading computer manufacturer HP has brought back Windows 7 “by popular demand”. Although the PC maker hasn’t specified who demanded this four-year old operating system, its homepage can be found filled with Windows 7 powered laptops.

The PC maker reportedly was notifying its users over the past weekend about how you can save $150 by picking a Windows 7-running system. Why would you want to travel back in the past and use an old operating system is something HP hasn't explained yet.

With Windows 9 coming out next year, and Update 1 of Windows 8.1 arriving this spring, why a leading PC maker would rather you buy a less secure operating system just doesn't make any sense.

In fact, if you visit HP's website now, it would take you several clicks to locate Windows 8 and 8.1-running computers. Even its tablet section has Android tablets all over it.

While it is understandable, as Windows 7 is indeed sitting at the top of the operating system share, but just a few weeks ago, we saw Windows 8 and 8.1's market share finally touching the double figures. This remodeling from a leading manufacturer will steer away new users from buying Microsoft's latest operating system.
