Windows 8 at Abt Electronics

Friday, September 16th, 2011

Out with the old, in with the new.  That’s defnitiely something Windows users are familiar with.  This time around, the newest incarnation, Windows 8 is catering to a faster, touch-related crowd.  Our Connect store representative Jay Irwin gave me the details on what to expect with the new operating system.

Windows 8 is already on display and accessible on two computers we have in our Connect Store.    “There are two big differences I can see with Windows 8 compared to Windows 7,” Jay mentiones.  “The first is how responsive the operating software is.  Everything, whether it is touch related or mouse or keyboard, it is extremely responsive.  Zero lag, zero wait time.  The second thing is the new Metro UI (user interface) .  It is all about touch, so the design is extremely intuitive and easily accessible.”

The desktop is extremely easy to use when you are controlling by touch, much like you would your touch-phone.  Applications, folders, and other programs are easily accessed through intuitive, smooth motions.  Come by the Connect Store in our Atrium this weekend and see for yourself!

Need A New Laptop? Abt Has The Perfect One For You!

Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

I could not believe it until I actually saw it.  The Toshiba Protégé R700-S1321 is the most impressive laptop that I have seen in years.  With its 13.3-inch screen that still lets me keep an optical drive but yet does not sacrifice battery and power, and best yet boasts about an 8 plus hour battery, and includes Windows 7 Professional, or a free downgrade to Windows XP.  What could be better?  Well the fact that this laptop only weighs 3.2 pounds and includes a Core i5 processor.  Overall this machine is special in the sense that for the first time in a long time Toshiba is offering a laptop that gives you the best of both worlds; thin and lightweight with plenty of power and battery life.  Abt has this laptop on display in the Connect Store.  It is something that should be truly seen if you are in the market for a new laptop.
