Like many IT professionals, you may be wondering if it’s worth the time and energy to make the upgrade to Windows 8
. Well, if you’re still running Windows XP, there’s no better time than now, as Microsoft officially ends support for that version of their OS on April 8, 2014. If you’ve already upgraded to Windows 7, you may think that’s good enough, but I’ll tell you that Lenovo
has poured time and effort into making Windows 8 on our devices an unbeatable computing experience. So you just may want to seriously consider that upgrade.
With the launch of Windows 8, Lenovo has produced the 8th version of their Enhanced Experience, which means that Lenovo products have been engineered to make the most out of all the new features in Windows 8. Even if you’re already running Windows 7, upgrading to Windows 8 can improve your productivity and efficiency—Windows 8 is Windows 7, but better, providing better performance, better battery life, multi-monitor improvements, faster WiFi reconnection, enhanced security, and more. On top of all that are additional Lenovo enhancements, such as Lenovo ThinkPad’s legendary keyboards, Lenovo QuickSend, Lenovo Mobile Access, Lenovo Settings, and more.
