There was a post by Microsoft a week or so ago that said they would stop selling Windows 7 on October 30, 2014, but they have since said that was an errant post. You should be able to purchase new PCs with Windows 7 installed for the next year at least. Microsoft has also backed off of a previous statement that retail sales (which I assume me shipments of new product) ended on October 30, 2013. An updated, hopefully correct end of sales date is yet to be determined.
