Microsoft Windows 8


Full desktop functionality, designed for touchscreen use. Windows8 - Logo

A dramatic upgrade from traditional operating systems, Microsoft Windows® 8 features upgraded aesthetics and interface — as well as new features and functionality for greater levels of productivity that can give your company an edge.


Streamline your workflow with a start screen that reflects your priorities. Customizable colors, backgrounds and tile sizes give you the perspective you need to stay on task all day long. And in just one click, you can go back to the familiar Windows desktop you’re used to seeing.


With Windows 8, great apps come standard. Here are just a few useful apps that are pre-installed:

  • Mail
    Stay connected and access email from all accounts in one place.
  • Camera
    Take and share photos and videos for enhanced communication.
  • Maps
    Pinpoint locations, get directions and see traffic to streamline your route.
  • Calendar
    Track your schedule and receive appointment notifications so you’re never late for a meeting again.
  • Sound Recorder
    Easily record meetings and notes from your device.


With over 100,000 apps to choose from, you’ll find everything from efficiency tools, communication platforms and knowledge centers to boost productivity.


Touch-based controls in Windows 8 enable easy navigation, with high-efficiency capabilities such as handwritten note-taking and the ability to use multiple apps simultaneously.


Finding and connecting to a network is easier and more intuitive than ever. Windows 8 can also track and meter data usage for 3G/4G cellular networks, and a new Airplane Mode enables easy shutdown of all wireless communication.


With improved support for multiple displays, advanced security protection, expandable storage options, SkyDrive integration and a new Task Manager, Windows 8 has incorporated several new functions perfect for businesses. Add to that the Enterprise-grade Windows to Go, which puts an entire Windows 8 desktop environment on a bootable thumb drive, and you’ve got a powerful operating system.
