10

Microsoft today posted another ad in the Honestly series. This ad focuses on touchscreen portable All-in-ones from Windows OEMs. There are lots of great portable All-in-One’s like Sony, VAIO Tap 21, Dell XPS 18, Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon and HP Envy Rove 20. In the above ad, Microsoft also highlighted the fact that none of the Apple Macs come with touchscreens.

Whether it’s watching the best wedding band, finding the perfect dress on Pinterest or getting stuff done with Microsoft OneNote and Excel, Windows all-in-ones  give you the best of work and play. The New Windows: One experience for everything in your life.

Watch the ad above, it makes a good point.

    A bit misleading though as microsoft is currently improving more on the mouse and keyboard side of things, than touch on windows 8.

      No it isn’t. They are just making adjustments to make the non touch side of Windows to work better. The touch portion is still in tact. It’s aimed to make it more flexible.

        No the aim is to appease Corporate IT departments who have said no way we will buy W8 without without fixing it. Not to mention consumer have showed little interest in metro/modern/what-R-PR-pass-It-off-now

    It’s a dig, but, they don’t really give a good reason why she “needs” a touch screen to plan a wedding.
    IMO, It would have been more effective if they showed them working in OneNote and dragging items around to help organize the plan.

    I can’t imagine what a touch based OSX could possible look like. If it looks anything like IOS it’s an immediate failure. I think they are going to make something cool eventually, but it’s going to be so behind. Windows is the benchmark and the future of modern touch (content consumption) and kb/mouse (content creation) interfaces.

      Given the poor sales of touchscreen PCs to date I don’t think anyone is setting a benchmark at this point.

    • LexicoRed

      Ya, that is one thing EVERYBODY agrees upon, iOS was an immediate failure…

      • Orc

        iOS is aimed for light consuming activity. Not advanced tasks.

          Depending on your definition of advance task. In my office I have designers making graphics, musicians creating soundtracks, programmers coding on iPad, but I still using desktop Excel in creating financial reports. While I would hate to do my work on a touch device, people are fools to say creation and only consumption is happening on iPad devices.
