MANCHESTER, England--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Online electrical retailer dabs.com is proud to announce that, from this Friday, October 18, the latest version of Windows, known as Windows 8.1, will be available.
“Windows 8.1 tablets and PCs are designed to make the things anyone does on any kind of computer, and the information and resources they need, easier than ever to access and to start up”
And anyone who buys a Windows 8 PC or Windows 8 tablet from Dabs.com (http://www.dabs.com/category/computing,laptops-and-tablets,tablet-pcs/11313-56860000) now from existing stocks can get a free upgrade to the new operating system, as soon as it becomes available.
Windows 8.1 promises a far more personalised way of doing anything, whether it's on a desktop, laptop or tablet PC, or mobile phone. Its start screen boasts more colours and available backgrounds than ever.
Anyone who puts the emphasis on staying organised while browsing will love this update of the Windows 8 operating system, as it makes it easier to view, organise and filter all the apps they rely on day in, day out.
Microsoft's engineers have also listened to many comments received about Windows 8, and one result is a reduced risk of accidentally losing an app or program simply while arranging things on the desktop.
It's also easier than before to organise apps according to how often they're used, when they were last fired up, and where users want them to appear on their screen.
Searching for the most appropriate content has also been made easier, with the new interface with Microsoft's Bing search engine pulling together results from an array of sources – not just the internet and social media, but also apps, files and external sources such as a SkyDrive – and making it easier and quicker than ever to start seeing the content that's found, whether it's starting up a song, or playing a video.
For the first time, Microsoft has also included basic photo-editing features into Windows 8.1, which means pictures can be instantly enhanced or cropped for optimal appearance in the Photos app.
Windows 8.1 is also designed for multi-tasking, with its interface with Internet Explorer 11 allowing as many tabs to be open at one time as the user wishes. It's also a doddle to synchronise devices to a computer running Windows 8.1 – it will even automatically transfer settings and apps saved on other devices.
"Windows 8.1 tablets and PCs are designed to make the things anyone does on any kind of computer, and the information and resources they need, easier than ever to access and to start up," said Sam Binks, Product Manager of Dabs.com.
Laptops and PCs capable of running on Windows 8.1 from Dabs.com (http://www.dabs.com/learn-more/software-and-books/windows-8-1-12672.html) start from under £320, and anyone who buys a new computer running its predecessor software, the original Windows 8, from Dabs.com, can benefit from the free upgrade offer.
