Become a walking advertisement for Windows 8 ... please
Oh, uh, hey, how's it going? It's your good friend Microsoft here. Would you consider us "best friends" or just "very, very good friends"? Either way we've got a favor to ask you: Can you buy this HP 17.3" i7 TouchSmart laptop from Woot to show off how cool Windows 8 is when you use it with a touchscreen?
Y'see, we made Windows 8 with the idea that everybody would be using touchscreen computers by now. And, as it turns out, that is … not what happened. So now our fancy new operating system just seems kinda weird. And that's where you come in.
If you do us a solid and buy this powerful, multi-tasking machine, then all your friends will see how cool it is to navigate Windows 8 with a touchscreen. You'll be all pinching and zooming and swiping between screens and your (other) friends will be all "Whoa what is that and how can I get involved?"
You're not into it? OK we have a backup idea. Just buy a Surface tablet and tape it to your computer.
