The folks over at Microsoft have made no secret of the fact that they are aiming towards an environment where all handheld and desktop devices are running variants of the same operating system. If you have installed Windows 10 on your PC, you are sure to have noticed the significant changes introduced by MS in the latest version of the OS. For those interested in Windows 10, the upcoming update might provide enough motivation to purchase a whole new device just for Windows 10. Even if you aren’t a fan of Windows 10, and want a prime gaming PC or a nifty tablet to carry around, the choice of purchasing the right device is always a critical one. To make sure you get the most out of your money, it is very important to buy the device that you really need. This is why Staples (the famous office equipment supplier) has partnered with MS to release Microsoft Match. This web tool allows users to find out which device most closely fits their needs.
To use Microsoft Match, visit the link provided at the end of this post. You can think of the service as a quiz, which asks you about your usage habits and other device-related preferences.
Microsoft Match only takes six questions to gauge your actual needs. To initiate the quiz, hit the ‘Find Your Match’ button on the homepage of the service. Microsoft Match suggests both tablets and computers, so it is perfect for anyone who wants to find out if a Surface if going to have enough firepower for photo editing, or if their desired laptop will be good for usage on the go.
The questions asked by Microsoft Match are pretty simple. You will be asked the main purpose behind your quest for a new device, as well as your general usage habits. If you are a power user, and are looking to upgrade your primary device, a tablet probably isn’t suitable for you. This is the kind of information this service wants to ascertain.
Once you are done with the quiz, multiple suggestions show up. These suggestions are from the same genre (desktop, laptop, or tablet) but include different brands running Windows. Since the quiz is on the Staples website, US users can order devices straightaway as well.
Microsoft Match is a very useful tool and if you are confused about selecting the perfect device that caters to your daily needs, head to the link below and give the service a whirl.
