Microsoft is slamming Apple yet again in a series of new ads boasting the popular HP convertible and Dell XPS notebook.

As part of Microsoft's "Do more with Windows 10 PC" campaign, Microsoft has released two new promo videos detailing the diverse ecosystem that a Windows 10 system can offer. The timing of the new ads coincide with the free upcoming anniversary update rolling out on August 2nd.

Unsurprisingly, the ads present young users and millennials preferring Windows 10 PCs to a comparable Apple platform. Microsoft is stressing the flexibility and versatility of its operating system and software for everyday life. It's interesting that the company is choosing to show off the HP Spectre x360 convertible and the traditional Dell XPS 13 notebook in its ads over other potential models, both of which have received generally good praise from the press including us.

Microsoft will celebrate its first anniversary of Windows 10 in just a few days with a number of improvements and features including Windows Ink for better stylus and handwriting support, a redesigned Start menu, more Cortana commands, and better security with Windows Hello. The free upgrade for existing Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1 users has already ended.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
