A perfect match
Win8 Ultrabooks and Tablets
The perfect match
Win8 was designed for both touch and
mouse/keyboard interfaces,
because most users need both.
Ultrabooks and tablets are proposing fantastic
intel based designs working in both modes.

Be aware
Be aware that not all devices running Win8 are intel
based, and they may not propose the same
features and performances.
If you want to be able to run your typical
windows applications on the desktop, you may
want to pick an intel based design.
The challenge
Win8 Ultrabooks and Tablets
What’s new ?
Win8 on Intel devices has everything
to be a success.
But programming for Win8 is different.
And users expect more than the typical
applications on the desktop : they want nice
design, touch enabled apps, smart apps using
sensors …

The challenge
For developers, it’s a challenge : new users, new
expectations, design requirements, need to rethink
usage models … etc.
But intel is here to help :
We have this full Win8 course
We are proposing hackathons to let you
experience and develop on intel designs.
We have app contests for motivation.
