Earlier this week we were excited to learn about the definitive launch date for Windows 10. Now Microsoft is hinting at the devices that will roll out after customers start to get their free upgrades.

Windows Insiders running the Insider preview builds already have a sense of what Windows 10 will look like when it becomes available on July 29. Customers will see for themselves in less than two months, when they download the new OS on desktops, laptops, and tablets running Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 8.1 Update.

Windows 10 is promised to transform the user experience across all current Windows devices. But how will it look on devices of the future?

Nick Parker, vice president of Microsoft's OEM division, gave us a hint at the Computex 2015 conference. In his keynote, Parker discussed how Windows 10 should spark sales of Windows 8.1 devices and showcased a few new products specifically designed to run the new OS.

Re: So last year
@SaneIT a 42" display may be over the top, but I think you're right in saying this tech has potential for people who regularly work from home. It'll be interesting to see whether it gets more popular as more people get the option to work remotely.

Re: So last year
@pedrogonzales The Surfaces have worked well for me in terms of mobile productivity (lighter than a laptop, easy to carry around) but I'd also like to try the Asus or HP 2-in-1 tablet/laptops. I need a keyboard for productivity, so just a tablet wouldn't cut it.
