Starting in November, Dell will start shipping out its first Windows 8 tablet, the Latitude 10 featuring full Windows 8 Pro and starting at $649 (GB£619, AU$632).

Also arriving in November are the XPS Duo 12 convertible notebook/tablet hybrid starting at $1,199.99 (GB£999, AU$1,169), the 14-inch Latitude 6430u business ultrabook for $899 (about GB£563, AU$875) and the 23-inch OptiPlex 9010 all-in-one touchscreen desktop starting at $1,199 (GB£799, AU$1168).

In North America, Dell is already taking orders on its entire Windows 8 lineup, with the second batch of hardware shipping "in the coming days and weeks."

U.K. users may have a bit more of a wait for some of those, with Dell saying the XPS 10 and Inspiron 15z will start shipping there in December.
