Microsoft’s Sean Alexander got the scoop on some select custom-built laptops by ASUS with a sleek backlit Vista orb on the casing. Apparently these were made for a select number of Microsoft partners (although more likely well-off executives) to demonstrate the advantages of Windows Vista, just in case they hadn’t seen enough marketing videos already.
It specs a widescreen (rare) Tablet PC packed with a Centrino Core 2 Duo and a bunch of extras running on Windows Vista Ultimate with Aero Glass. Sean adds, “it’s a nice example of what PC OEMs can do when motivated”. I guess the multi-billion dollar industry just doesn’t cut it anymore.
Pictures or it never happened right?
Microsoft gave out the wrong laptops to bloggers. Those executives better disclose where they got the laptops from. 😉
