Shift to a Modern Desktop with Surface and Microsoft 365

April 30, 2019 Ingram Micro

If you’re living in the past, technologically speaking, now is the time to modernize your desktop. Too many people are suffering through the use of large, clunky monitors and being distracted by fans whirring loudly inside their prehistoric PCs. If you find yourself wasting time – waiting for emails to send or documents to open – think about how much easier your work day would be with an updated system. With so many sleek computing devices and proficient software and productivity apps on the market, there’s no excuse to be suffering through the dark ages of technology.

The best way to implement a modern desktop is to switch to a Microsoft Surface for Business device with Windows 10 Pro, in combination with Office 365 ProPlus. With Surface and Microsoft 365, you will boost productivity and have the ideal hardware and software combination for whatever your profession may be, all while resting assured that top-notch security measures are protecting everything you do.

Windows 7 to Windows 10

Please note that if your PC is running Windows 7, it will no longer receive updates or support after January 14, 2020. This means Microsoft will not send you new security updates, non-security hotfixes, free or paid assisted support options and online technical content updates. Essentially, your device cannot be considered protected if you do not update your operating system. If you’re switching from Windows 7 to Windows 10, why not take this transitional time as an opportunity to update your device as well?

Productivity

The streamlined Microsoft Surface for Business hardware and the powerful software of Microsoft 365 are designed to enhance productivity. With remote working and freelancing on the rise, a lot of people don’t even have desks nowadays, let alone IT technicians at their disposal. Deployment tools and dashboards mean your device will be up-and-running in minutes without any help from a tech expert. Mobile computing makes it easy to work on-the-go. Surface devices are equipped with always-connected LTE and hours of battery life. Whenever inspiration hits, your device will be ready and waiting. Mobile computing isn’t the only component that makes Surfaces easier for the modern worker. The state-of-the-art cameras, microphones, and speakers built into each device will make it feel like your video call meetings are happening in the same room as you.

Security

Microsoft 365 combined with Surface devices ensure your data is safeguarded and protected against security threats. Your device will automatically update to Windows 10’s latest security features so you will never have to worry that it isn’t up to date. As a further layer of protection, there’s Windows Hello, a facial or fingerprint recognition software.

Devices

Each Microsoft Surface for Business device is designed with you in mind. From the Surface Go and Surface Pro tablets, and Surface Laptop that function perfectly for remote workers, travelers and digital nomads, to the Surface Studio, which will replace the desktop computer engineers, designers and executives are used to.

If you’re still using a cumbersome desktop computer that is running on an ancient operating system, it’s time to make the switch to a Microsoft Surface for Business device with Windows 10 Pro. Contact your local Microsoft dealer today for more information on which Surface is right for you.
