IT Best Practices: Microsoft Windows 10 works synergistically with laptops based on 6th, 7th, and 8th generation Intel Core vPro processors, resulting in up to 10 hours of battery life and a new, intuitive user experience. These capabilities provide increased performance when multiple applications are running on a user’s machine as well as features such as Modern Standby, Timeline, and Fluent Design. To provide the highest value, we refresh a user’s PC with the latest Intel architecture-based platform when we upgrade to Windows 10. To date, we have more than 90,000 devices on Windows 10. The majority of these are new systems based on 6th and 7th gen Intel Core vPro processors. We are now qualifying 8th gen Intel Core vPro processor-based systems with Windows 10, and we will begin deployment in the second quarter of 2018. We have also made available a self-service Windows 10 in-place upgrade process and have upgraded over 50,000 devices using this method. We expect to have over 100,000 PCs—nearly our entire fleet—running Windows 10 by the end of 2018.
