Dozen of new PCs are launching alongside Windows 8. Some are inventive new designs with sliding keyboards and removable screens, others are simple retreads of existing products, occasionally augmented by a new touch screen.

Here you’ll find links to all the major new Windows 8 hardware being released this holiday season, sorted by brand. Many of these systems are available to preorder now, and most will ship when Windows 8 launches on October 26 (a handful have yet to even be announced, so we’ll add those to this list when they are).

We’ve seen, tested, or reviewed many of these systems already, and will continue to add links to hands-on content and reviews, so check back regularly.

Toshiba plays it a bit too safe as well in most of these Windows 8 laptops, but it also has a take on the slider PC, which may be the most practical way to combine a laptop and tablet.
