Wall Street Journal: Mossberg’s Fall PC Buying Guide

win7new

Wall Street Journal computer guru Walt Mossberg has released his annual Fall Computer Buying Guide.

Mossberg says:

“Consumers shopping for new computers this fall have a wide variety of choices with the new operating systems pre-installed, making the machines faster and better. Windows PCs are no longer burdened with the disliked Vista OS”.

“That’s the good news. The bad news is that the Windows hardware makers and retailers generally are trying to nudge you to spend more. They are anxious to guide consumers away from the popular, but low-profit, stripped-down netbooks to somewhat larger Windows 7 laptops from which they can make more money. This larger-size category goes by a variety of names, which can be confusing”.
