So far, waiting gets you more for the buck.

If you look back a few decades, this question is one of the easy ones.

the back to school pricing and soon with Windows 8 in October the Windows 7 machines prices should fall.

If you need the laptop now get it. You can add Windows 8 in a couple months for just $20. I did the similar thing when Win 7 was in the works. But if the upgrade is like the last one it takes an hour or so and has a tricky part. I'm not sure whether Win 8 is worth waiting for though.
There might be a few new machines out to coincide with the Win8 launch but most will be the same.
If your timeframe is rigid at early October you will miss the launch date.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
