Windows 7 hits Auckland and Wellington streets

Microsoft and hardware partner HP hit the streets in Auckland and Wellington today to launch new operating system Windows 7.

Aucklanders who gathered in the city centre this morning had the chance to win HP and Microsoft technology worth more than $15,000 in total.

In Wellington's Civic Square, HP gave away a Pavilion dv7 notebook and copies of the OS throughout the morning.

There is also a chance to take part in a TradeMe auction of a Pavilion dv7 notebook signed by All Black Richie McCaw, who attended the Auckland event. The auction proceeds will go to Lifeline.

Windows 7 business group manager Ben Green says the event showcased the capabilities of the OS, including multi-touch support and home media sharing.

HP is among the PC manufacturer releasing new product ranges to coincide with Windows 7's release.

“HP has worked closely with Microsoft throughout the development of Windows 7," says SMB marketing manager Warwick Grey. "Our new Windows 7 ready range PCs take full advantage of the operating system’s new features. By the number of pre-sales our retail partners have received, our customers are excited about the launch too.”
