HP restores Windows 7 PCs due to popular demand
Hewlett-Packard (HP) has reportedly resurrected laptop PCs with its older operating system Windows 7, following popular demand.
Windows 7 has a good number of takers despite the debut of Windows 8.1 last October.
While Windows 8.1 holds 3.6 percent of the desktop operating system market, post its launch, Windows 7 is used by 47.5 percent of all desktop PCs, whereas, Widows XP is still used by 29.9 percent of desktops which is three times the combined market share of Windows 8 and 8.1, Cnet reported.
In order to boost sales, HP is also offering a discount of 150 dollars on Core i5 and i7 powered machines.
