Manufacturer will work closely with Microsoft for faster driver updates.

The major manufacturers are all jumping in on the launch of Windows 10. Now, HP has announced that its portfolio of products are ready for the upgrade. The manufacturer had already planned an upgrade path to Windows 10 for its 2015 notebooks, so users who bought an HP product this year should expect a smooth transition. Meanwhile, new products will ship with Windows 10 for the rest of the year and beyond.

To make the transition as consumer-friendly as possible, HP is working closely with both hardware suppliers and Microsoft for faster and smoother driver updates. Additional details are provided below via briefing slides from Mike Nash, VP of Portfolio Strategy and Customer Experience. These are certainly worth checking out as they reveal additional product details and interesting survey results regarding mobile users.

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.
