Intel win 8_refresh_top_reasons (august 2013)

  1. 1. Take the road to greater productivity, security, and management with modern devices powered by Windows 8 and Intel Core processors. Learn more: www.intel.com/vpro www.intel.com/go/LaptopRefreshEstimator The risks of staying on legacy systems running Windows XP Microsoft support ends April 2014 After the security patches, drivers, and system updates vanish, you’ll be left with some tough choices: live with the risks and incompatibilities, resort to pricey custom programming, or spend valuable time finding workarounds for issues. Increasing security risk Security risks rise dramatically on older, unsupported systems, and that puts your employees, customers, and business data at risk. Higher support and remediation costs Support costs increase substantially after the first three years of a PC’s life span due to extended warranty costs, hardware failures, driver issues, security breaches, and other factors1 The benefits of upgrading to modern devices built on Intel Core processors and Windows 7 or Windows 8 Hardware-enhanced security PCs built on Intel Core processors include stronger security features baked into the silicon. Windows 7 and Windows 8 build on those features to provide efficient encryption, strong identity protection, and exceptional abilities to detect and block malware. Comprehensive remote management capabilities With devices built on Intel Core vPro processors, administrators have comprehensive remote management capabilities for remediating problems, pushing out updates, and even troubleshooting remote systems that are powered down or have disabled operating systems. Lower total cost of ownership Newer systems are more cost effective because they are easier to manage, operate more efficiently, and reduce remediation costs by keeping you safer. Increased usability and flexibility With Windows 8, users have a consistent user experience with touch-enabled computing across PCs, Ultrabook devices, and tablet devices, which translates into lower training and support costs. Faster, more efficient devices Devices built on Intel Core processors and Windows 7 or Windows 8 offer fast, efficient operation for higher productivity and reduced power usage. Your Business Is At a Crossroad The prospect of upgrading hundreds or thousands of PCs and operating systems can be daunting, but the costs and risks of staying on Windows XP and legacy PCs might be higher than you think.
