Take Advantage of Windows 8
Be ready to take advantage of the next big revolution in PC computing: Windows 8. The new Start screen has all of the information you care about in one place, such as your contacts, the weather, and the next appointment on your calendar. Start Page is a completely reinvented interface with interactive tiles that remain up-front and center -- and they dynamically change and update in real-time.
With the power and innovation of your new Windows 8 Toshiba PC, you get apps that are always on and easily accessible from your Start screen. You'll also get new, built-in apps for the things you do most, like new Microsoft Mail, Calendar, SkyDrive, Photos, People, and Messaging.
On your Microsoft 8 Toshiba PC, the Charms bar replaces the Start button, offering quick access to search, sharing features, devices and settings. Enjoy the convenience of seeing everything front and center, right where you need it.
