It's a new era for PCs. Sleek and lightweight, with a focus on beautiful design and innovative materials, Windows PCs have reached new heights in performance and battery life.
Entertainment and apps of every kind take center stage. Tap into your creative side, lose yourself in a game with friends, discover and download video and songs, and play them on your TV or Xbox 360.
Catch a movie, take in the latest gossip, and power through your to-do list. Go from full-screen video to spreadsheet in one swipe, or
snap them side-by-side for easy multi-tasking. Zoom through your files, do instant searches from any app you're in, and fire up familiar programs—they run faster than ever.

The desktop that you're used to—along with the familiar file structure and ways of getting around—is not only still here, it's even better than it was. And things like Control Panel and Task Manager are faster and easier to find and use.
Built-in mobile broadband features in Windows support 3G and 4GLTE. As you move, your PC will automatically find and use available Wi‑Fi hotspots. So you can be effortlessly connected and ready to work and stay in touch from virtually anywhere.
