4 reasons to upgrade your desktop now
If your old desktop is on its last legs, it’s time for a change. Here are 4 good reasons to upgrade…
1. Stylish Designs
Desktop PCs have traditionally been bulky, ugly affairs – all big oblong boxes and snaking cables - designed for power, not beauty.
Now you can have the best of both worlds.
All-in-one desktops squeeze the hardware components into the monitor, completely doing away with the old tower design.
With a single power cable and optional wireless mouse and keyboard, all-in-one PCs look stylish and are easy to set up.
2. Innovative new technology
Desktop PCs contain some of the most innovative technology around. Depending on the model you choose, you can get:
- Edge-to-edge display with incredibly thin bezels for a more immersive picture.
- 8th Generation Intel® Core processor for smooth, effortless computing.
- Touchscreen designed to work with Windows 10 – swipe between apps or navigate Netflix.
- SSD (solid state drive) storage for fast booting and shutting down, as well as quick loading of apps and files.
3. Windows 10
Windows 10 is Microsoft’s latest operating system and it’s packed with new features…
- Type notes directly onto web pages and save as PDFs – useful for work projects and planning family holidays.
- Stay on top of your schedule and play music using the voice-controlled digital assistant, Cortana.
- Sync activities and apps between computers with the new Timeline feature.
- Get rid of pop-up ads and banners when browsing in Read View on the Edge web browser.
4. There’s a Windows PC for everyone
