Lenovo lays out Windows 10 devices to the market

“With Windows 10, computing gets more personal, productive and connected."

Lenovo will begin shipping a wide selection of products loaded with Windows 10 starting immediately, including a range of PCs and tablets.

Through working with Microsoft, users can also upgrade from Windows 7 SP1 or 8.1 to to Windows 10 from now.

If a user has reserved a copy of Windows 10, Lenovo says the operating system will be downloaded onto their system, and to give users consistent experiences across devices and operating systems, the preloads include a suite of Lenovo-written applications.

“With Windows 10, computing gets more personal, productive and connected,” says Tom Shell, senior vice president, PC Business Group, Lenovo.

“Across our entire PC product line, from the office to the home, we’ve optimised our Lenovo devices to give customers a great computing experience while giving them enhanced search tools like Cortana with REACHit.”

Furthermore, the new Lenovo Companion 3.0 optimisation tool can be used at any time to run a full-scale checkup and report back with specific actions to free up space and speed up the device.

As a ‘smart’ device control hub, the new Lenovo Settings lets users adapt and modify the way their device behaves.

For example, when in tablet mode, the product will customise its display and other settings based on its orientation versus in traditional laptop mode.

Alternatively, the device’s usage will also alter its settings, for example when watching a movie versus reading an e-book.

As announced at Tech World in May, Lenovo and Microsoft have also worked to integrate Cortana and REACHit, Lenovo’s app that allows users who opt-in to search for and manage their content across multiple devices and cloud storage platforms.

With REACHit, Cortana enables users to find their content such as emails, photos and videos. This functionality will be available in beta to Lenovo users starting in the Spring.

By 2020 a DX economy will emerge and it will become the core of what New Zealand industries focus on. From the board level through to the C-Suite, Kiwi organisations must be prepared to think and act digital when the DX economy emerges in 2017.
