All the Apps you want - Apps are the heart of Windows 8. You’ll be able to get up to speed quickly with a set of built-in apps for the things you do the most. Designed for your connected lifestyle, these apps integrate with the services you already use.
Built-in Apps - With Windows 8, your entire PC is cloud-connected. You’ll have new Microsoft Mail, Calendar, SkyDrive, Photos, People, and Messaging apps that are connected to services like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter just by adding them to your Microsoft account.
Apps work together - In Windows 8, apps work together so you can share information between them and streamline your work. For example, the Photos and Mail apps are connected, so you can select a picture from an album in your Photos app and email it to one of your contacts with a single click. No more opening your mail separately and attaching the picture. You can enable apps to include content from SkyDrive, share with your contacts in the People app, and send mail to people you know.
Your Windows, everywhere - Perfect it once, have it always. Sign in to any of your devices running Windows 8 and your personalized settings and apps are right there.
Connected to your people -Your apps light up with connections to your friends and family. Info from the services you connect to Hotmail, Messenger, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and more appears right inside the Mail, Messaging, and People apps.
Connected to your files - You use multiple PCs and a phone. Now you can connect across these devices to SkyDrive, Facebook, Flickr, and other services, so you can smoothly get to all your photos and files.
Great experience across many different devices - Because Windows 8 can run on low-power CPUs, you can work much longer on a single charge. That means you can stay connected so your PC is ready when you are. Battery life is longer and connections are stronger so you’ll be able to find a device to suit you for work or play. Lower power requirements are also helped by the growing number of energy-efficient devices that are designed to work with Windows 8.
Share between devices - Tap and Do works on mobile devices equipped with Near Field Communications (NFC) so you can tap two devices together and share information. Tap and Setup is another feature available with Windows 8 that lets you easily connect wireless devices, like keyboards, mice, headphones, and speakers by simply tapping them against your PC. No more PINs or complicated setup steps!
