Microsoft has revealed five manufacturers will offer Windows RT PCs after the operating system launches.
It said Samsung, Dell and Lenovo would sell PCs powered by the software, adding to previous announcements about Asus and Microsoft itself.
Windows RT is designed to work on chips based on British firm ARM’s designs.
It is the first version of Microsoft’s flagship system made for consumer devices not powered by the x86 chip architectures used by Intel and AMD.
Windows RT devices will become available on 26 October alongside the release of other Windows 8 products.
But unlike the other versions of the system it will not be offered as a stand-alone purchase, and can only be obtained by buying one of the computers it is installed upon.
