Recently launched as a free upgrade for Windows* 7 and Windows* 8.1, Windows® 10 is already shaping up to be the next great operating system for millions of PC users. Not only does it combine the usability and security of the previous two systems, it also has new features that truly propel it into a class of its own. Here are just 3 examples of how Windows® 10 will forever change the way you use your PC for work and play.
Jumping right into Windows® 10 is easy, more so if you’re already familiar with Windows* 7. Both operating systems share many similarities, including the much-loved Start menu. If you’re more of a Windows* 8 kind of person, you’ll be glad to know customizable Live Tiles are also available as an option.
One thing you may notice is the speed with which the system starts up, resumes, and performs day-to-day tasks. And when powered by the new 6th generation Intel® Core™ processor or Intel® Core™ M processor on your PC, laptop, tablet, or phone, you can experience amazing speed and performance across all your devices.
Universal apps and Windows Continuum*1 for Windows® 10 fully maximizes the versatility of your 2 in 1 laptop by letting you toggle between laptop and tablet modes with a click. And if you should ever find yourself away from either, just connect your phone to a screen and keyboard to enjoy a full-screen, full PC experience.
But it doesn’t have to be all work and no play. You can also link your Windows® 10 PC to your Xbox* and play on either, all while sharing stats, achievements, and even real-time display mirroring.
Interacting with your computer is easy and natural with Windows® 10. Now you can make notes directly onto web pages with Microsoft Edge*, create different virtual desktops for work and play, and switch effortlessly between apps.
For those who prefer a more hands-off approach, you can interact with your device or the web just by talking to Cortana*2, the intelligent voice assistant on all your Windows® 10 devices, not just your mobile.
Even logging into your system may be quick, easy and best of all, password-free. Using Intel® RealSense™ Technology3, Windows Hello*4 just needs you to look at your screen to verify your identity. In fact, the Intel® RealSense™ Camera is so advanced, it can detect if it’s really you or simply a photo of you.
With so many new features built upon the familiarity of past systems, Windows® 10 is certainly a significant update that’s best experienced with Intel inside. Shop the range of Windows® 10-ready devices powered by Intel® Core™ processors here.
