Photo slideshow: Windows 8 launch press event in Sydney, Australia

This morning, hours after the US launch of Windows 8 in New York City, Microsoft Australia held the official Australian Windows 8 launch event near Fox Studios of Sydney, Australia.

Besides the keynote, the event had an open space area which invited guests to try out an array of new Windows 8 all-in-one desktops, notebooks, hybrid convertibles and tablets including the rare Microsoft Surface in limited supply down under (there were only 5 or so at the event).

Here are my photos from the event.
