Now this is an endeavor everyone can get behind! Microsoft seems bent on making large touch screens go mainstream, and the company is ready to do what’s needed in getting this done. Redmond acquired Perceptive Pixel for an undisclosed sum back in 2012. Since then, we have heard nothing about what the technology titan...

Nothing in life has any business being perfect. When taken in context, 2013 for Microsoft has been a country mile better than the previous year. While the launch of Windows 8 brought with it an air of unpredictability, these past few months were all about stability and consolidation. We took a look at some of the...

If there is one thing I absolutely dislike about laptops right now, it is the reluctance of hardware vendors to enhance the displays on their devices. Forget notebooks, even many ultrabooks are stuck by default in the horrifying 1366 by 768 pixels resolution. Go back a few years, and 1600 by 900 and 1920 by 1080...

But it seems that good days for the company’s latest operating system are just around the corner, as hardware makers are...

Compared to other PC vendors, Lenovo seems to be doing alright. While several hardware makers reported double digit decline in sales this year, the Chinese company revealed some solid showing. But Lenovo has long outlined its plans to establish itself as the biggest PC maker in the world, and to do so it needs to...

The first word that comes to mind when thinking about Windows 8 is touch. For better or for worse, this functionality was to become one of the main reasons for the slow uptake of this new OS. As much as Microsoft wanted hardware vendors to create touch enabled laptops, the display panel makers had other ideas. They...

A figure was recently thrown around that revealed that 20 percent of all notebooks sold during the first quarter of the year were the models that included touchscreens. Now, however, a new research has floated up that shows that the first story is only partially true. Displaybank, a market research firm estimates that...

The release of Windows 8 has dynamically altered the touchscreen computers landscape, with hardware vendors and market analysts both weighing in on the future of touch enabled PCs.
