Although Apple’s iOS continues to advertise themselves as your all-in-one operating system, Windows 10 can’t get discounted. No matter what your profession or area of study, the latest Windows version might be the ticket Microsoft needs to level the playing field.
As far back as those cheesy commercials with Justin Long representing “Mac,” Windows has long gotten lauded as good for spreadsheets, and not much else. However, with the amount of cross-platform support that Microsoft has implemented, it seems that attitude is slowly changing.
Windows 10 runs on desktop, laptops, tablets, and even the Xbox One console. As a result, you could seemingly use it all day long for business and pleasure.
For example, what if we were to get into real estate investment in the Colorado market? Chances are, we’d start researching which properties are listed, and then meet with a local realtor.
Because we buy houses, Denver, Colorado’s market is likely going to remain heavily geared towards selling new construction properties first. As investment buyers, however, we’ll need research opportunities on the go.
With Windows 10, we can access results on our tablet, then sign into our account later on the desktop version to continue. And if my realtor happens to be game, I might bug them on my Xbox later.
Utilizing the Timeline feature, we never need to worry about remembering where we left off. That is exciting news for when you see a dozen listings on the same day.
Microsoft has also beefed up security measures, allowing me to work on the go with confidence. That means allowing myself to stop for a cup of coffee between seeing homes without worrying about hackers.
Apple still has its place, but Windows 10 is well worth a second glance for business or investing.
