Hi sodicka320 :)

According to the information we currently have, Windows 10 will be released in store as well on July 29th. The final build for the RTM have been picked and Microsoft is currently working on packaging it. You can read the article below for more information.

The release date for the GA available Globally is July 29.  That same day or immediately thereafter new Win10 hardware & retail boxes of it can be expected to be available.  The RTM would go to OEMs sometime prior to the 29th.  Also, I believe, Office 2016 will be released & available @ the same time.  That I should double check... said info goes back a bit.

I should hasten to add, Win10 will go out in waves, mostly so servers have some hope of coping w/ demand.  The 1st to begin receiving it are the Insiders, And Reserves, of course.  The caveat here is not everyone, everywhere, or retail shelves or OEMs... it will not be ALL, straight-way as of 29/7/15.  Yes, that is the official Launch date for the Windows 10 GA BUT, it is not being rolled out to everything, everywhere simultaneously on the 29th.  It begins on the 29th.

HP & Dell claim they will offer Win10 units on the 29th.  We'll see as RTM only went out this past week..

Yes, believe heard can be (pre)ordered, now, from a couple of online sources.

Well, downloading the upgrade to Windows 10, and buying a computer that comes with Windows 10 is two different things so I'm not surprised that they would start offering it on the 29th.

Please, rephrase this or something.  Read it a few times to no avail.  Please, reword.  Thanks.

Upgrading to Windows 10 from an existing Windows 7 or 8.1 installation is one thing. You need to download the upgrade from Microsoft's servers, hence why they'll do it as a progressive rollout.
However, HP and Dell are free to start selling computers with Windows 10 starting on July 29th without any limit since it'll already be installed on them, so it won't cripple the Microsoft download servers because there will be nothing to download.
Also so far the only website I've seen (Newegg.ca) showed Windows 10 being available for sale starting on the 29th, not before.

Well, obviously pre-loaded machines have nothing to w/ downloading anything from any servers..  Blatantly obvious.  Beyond mention.

Nobody said OEMs were not free to have units on the shelf the 29th, that's again obviously the idea... it has been suggested there would be no hardware available by the 29th because of when the RTM went out to OEMs BUT, in spite of that HP & Dell say the will have machines on Launch day.
God knows why you are trying to pick @ what I said; I sure don't + what you said is so obvious, leaves whatever your point is completely hidden.
It can't be  from Newegg or where before the 29th.  Cannot be retailed (sold) before it is released which is happening on the 29th.  Previously all the was mention was PRE ordering... cannot ship or whatever until the 29.  Nor is this scenario anything new or peculiar to Win10.
