    A New Era of Windows 10 Devices from Microsoft

    Weve been talking about Windows 10 for over a year now and today we started our next chapter, with new devices designed for Windows 10.

    Today I stood on stage in NYC along with members of my team and had the honor of unveiling a new era of Windows 10 devices from Microsoft. We introduced new Surface, Lumia, and Band devices and shared the latest from HoloLens, and Xbox. Ive been using these devices for months and couldnt wait to share them with you today.

    Windows 10: Off to the Hottest Start in History

    In just a few short months, its been incredible to see more than 110 million devices already running Windows 10. Im personally humbled and excited to see people around the world loving Windows 10. Thank you for your feedback the team and I love reading it and using it to help us shape the future of Windows.

    Were seeing a great response from IT professionals, with over 8 million business PCs already running Windows 10.

    Ive also been thrilled to see the response from developers and people enjoying everything our new Windows Store has to offer. With over 1.25 billion visits, developers are seeing the benefits with developer revenue per download increasing four times since Windows 10 launched. This early activity is attracting new universal Windows apps to Windows 10. Today, we announced Facebook will be building universal Windows apps for Facebook, Instagram, and Facebook Messenger. And, were excited to welcome new universal Windows apps for Box, Candy Crush Soda Saga, Flipagram, NASCAR, Uber and many, many more.

    New Windows 10 Devices from Microsoft

    Our approach to hardware is to create and reinvent categories like we did with Xbox and Xbox Live, with Surface being the tablet that can replace your laptop, with Lumia and Continuum, with Surface Hub, and of course with HoloLens being the only platform enabling you to mix holograms into your world.

    Today, we unveiled a range of new devices, all built to make the most of Windows 10:

    Surface Book the new, ultimate laptop from Microsoft brings together best in class performance with the versatility of pen and touch.

    Surface Pro 4 the tablet that can replace your laptop just got thinner, lighter and faster.

    New Lumia Phones the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL combine Windows 10 innovation with our most powerful hardware and top-of-the-line imaging to help you be more productive. And the Lumia 550, our most affordable 4G LTE smartphone running Windows 10.

    Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL

    Lumia 550

    Microsoft Band 2 the new Band can help you live healthier and achieve more with a new curved screen, a barometer, and apps for email, text, running, biking, the gym, and golf.

    Microsoft HoloLens Development Edition designed to help Windows developers mix holograms into their world.

    Xbox One With an upcoming update bringing Windows 10 to Xbox One, backward compatibility, hot games, all new bundles and the most advanced controller weve ever created for Xbox One and Windows 10.

    Looking Forward

    Last month, our device partners built more Windows devices than they ever have before in the history of Windows and since launch, weve been excited to see share increases for Windows at retail.

    And over the next couple of weeks, well be joining some of our partners around the globe as they unveil their holiday device lineup, with great new devices from Acer, ASUS, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, Lenovo, LG, Panasonic, Toshiba, and more. Our partners have built some amazing new devices and we have an exciting few weeks ahead of us as they unveil.

    With the depth and breadth of Windows 10 devices coming this holiday and beyond, from low cost budget PCs to premium and elegantly designed high performance hardware, we hope youll consider a Windows 10 device from Microsoft or our partners.

    Wow seems to be a lot of excitement over Microsoft's new products here, I've visited a few Apple sites and there's actually quite a bit of excitement even from Apple fans.

    What about Microsoft and what is happening.
    I know several friends who have Apple products and they are not happy.
    They are thinking of ditching their brand new iPhone 6 for the new Windows Phone so they can have the best of both worlds when they see what I can do with Windows 10

    So many devices to choose from ... my Asrock board is in the recycle bin.
    Bought a Surface 3.

    Use the Surface 3 with a dock. Decided to not build a new system for now.
    The atom powered 2 watt S3 is quite a good computer.
    Use it to watch free digital antennae television.

    It works beautifully with Windows 10 on it.

    It also works with Linux and Windows Server 2012
    although no drivers are available for those systems.

    Obviously, one must have a few bucks to get into this technology.
    Even the Surface 3, advertised @ 499 is the low end offer.
    Upgrade from 64 GB to 128 GB and add 100.
    Add a dock + 200 ... Add a typecover keyboard + 120 ...
    Now you're looking at $920 if it comes with 10 HOME.
    If you want PRO, Add more to that = ~ $1000

    I love my Acer Chromebook.
    Posting this using free wifi (not from home) on a Chromebook - LESS THAN $200.

    The Surface Book is loaded with awesome performance features.
    You don't need to buy a dock or keyboard.

    I was considering a new build of a 12 core or 24 core XEON system.
    Of course a cheaper system can be built,
    like a system with an intel CPU 5960X (just the CPU costs $1000)
    Does anyone need a $500 GPU to surf the net?

    A XEON E5-2690 v3 CPU starts @ over $2000

    Go top of the line - XEON E5-2699 v3 18 core 2.3 GHz CPU starts @ over $4600...

    Any of this tech can get pricey.

    Microsoft Hardware Division is really good with mobile computers.

    While I wouldn't say these things are cheap, back in 1995 I paid $2500 for a 486DX266 and that was cheap at the time.

    Even now, I can't figure out how we managed those huge sums of money for such low grade stuff! And we haven't even adjusted the $2,500 for inflation!!
