Alex Zaharov-Reutt has arranged for Microsoft to come to our next Main Meeting and his message to members is below.
Please note that the starting time for this meeting is later than usual.
Tuesday 28 January – Main Meeting – 6pm for 6:15pm
Kicking off 2014 for the Sydney PC Users Group is Microsoft Australia’s IT Pro Evangelist, Jeff Alexander, who last came to visit us in mid 2009 with a presentation on Windows 7, which was followed up a few months later with another Windows 7 presentation by Jeff’s colleague, Nick Hodge.
This time around Jeff will showcase Microsoft’s latest operating system, Windows 8.1, which represents a major advance from Windows 7 with dramatic performance enhancements and breakthrough next-gen touch capabilities that make Windows 8.1 the world’s most advanced, most compatible and most capable operating system, breathing new life into older hardware while igniting magical new experiences on the latest tablets, ultrabooks, notebooks and desktops.
Jeff has prepared a full 75-minute presentation giving him and us plenty of time to see Windows 8.1 in action, with an additional 15 minutes of Q&A time set aside for a total 1.5 hour presentation, so if you’ve been wondering whether it’s time to upgrade or buy a new Windows 8.1 device, this is one main meeting you won’t want to miss!
It’s also a great opportunity to bring along family and friends who’d like to see Windows 8.1 in action on new and old hardware, alongside getting their questions answered.
Jeff will generously bring along some Microsoft keyboard and mouse hardware along for the raffle!
We’ll compress or eliminate our regular “general business”, “consumer reports”, “tech news”, “interesting sites” and “live Q&A” segments, while still including the usual 10 minute break to give maximum time to Jeff’s presentation.
So, don’t miss what promises to be an excellent presentation from Jeff and Microsoft on Windows 8.1 on Tuesday the 28th of January, 2014!
See you there,
