Windows Consumer Experience Space I: Hardware

Last week I was at the Microsoft Windows Consumer Experience space in New York City.

At this event, primarily targeted at the consumer, as the name proclaims, I saw the directions being embarked upon by manufacturers in the notebook space and also in the gaming and all-in-one systems space.

  • Toshiba Satellite x205
