With Windows 8, you don’t have to choose between a fun touch device and a hard-working PC because you can have it both ways. Prefer a mouse and keyboard? Great. Prefer touch? Enjoy the convenience. Windows 8 runs on amazing hardware, from tablets to laptops to all-in-ones with large, high-definition screens. Whether you like to stay put or work on the go, you can enjoy the power, convenience, and versatility of Windows.
Windows 8 has the flexibility you need. It combines the convenience and mobility of a tablet with the productivity of a laptop or PC and gives you a great experience—practically anywhere.
Windows 8 is designed to deliver a great experience across many different devices, from ultra-fast desktops to low-power tablets. Because Windows 8 can run on low-power CPUs, you can work much longer on a single charge. That means you can stay connected so your PC is ready when you are. Battery life is longer and connections are stronger so you’ll be able to find a device to suit you for work or play.
Lower power requirements are also helped by the growing number of energy-efficient devices that are designed to work with Windows 8.
Share between devices
Tap and Do works on mobile devices equipped with Near Field Communications (NFC) so you can tap two devices together and share information. Tap and Setup is another feature available with Windows 8 that lets you easily connect wireless devices, like keyboards, mice, headphones, and speakers by simply tapping them against your PC. No more PINs or complicated setup steps!
More options for devices
Windows senses compatible wireless printers, TVs, speakers, and Xbox 360s on your home network and makes them ready to use automatically. Setup can be as easy as connecting your device to your home network.
