Microsoft & Apple Go Head To Head

Microsoft's next generation Windows 8 operating system was showcased at the Computex annual computer show this week, with many experts predicting that it will provide industry frontrunners Apple with some much-needed healthy competition. Apple have led the way with their ground-breaking iPad and Macbook Air products for the past few years, but it is predicted that Windows 8 and its sister products, which are due to launch later this year, will finally have the capacity to match these consumer favourites.

The Windows team intends to combat the popular Macbook Air with the creation and expansion of their own Chromebook series; lightweight, thin laptops which will soon have touchscreen capabilities for use with Windows 8. Microsoft will also incorporate Windows To Go, a brand new element which will allow the Windows 8 operating system to boot and run from a USB mass storage device such as a flash memory drive. It is believed the tablet market will be harder to crack for Microsoft, as the iPad accounted for 61% of the world's tablet market last year, but the signs that Windows 8 will finally provide competition for Apple's iOS systems are encouraging.

The reignited competition that has stagnated in recent years will see a surge in people updating their systems to be able to deal with the updates provided by both Microsoft and Apple. The Windows To Go function will mean external hard drives will become more of a necessity, whilst existing users of Macbook products will be attempting to stay ahead of the curve by updating their RAM. Data Memory Systems are a premier US supplier of memory solutions for both Apple and Windows products, and have all the necessary stock to ensure that users of both systems are satisfied.

The most budget-friendly external hard drive available from Data Memory Systems is their LaCie Rikiki Hi-Speed USB 2.0 500GB hard drive, which is perfect for anyone who needs constant access to their personal files, music and photos, and will have more than enough memory to accommodate the new Windows To Go function. The exterior is made from light aluminium, so that it is tough and yet light and easily transportable, and at just $91.50, this external hard drive will fit practically any budget.

For owners of Macbook Pro models, Apple memory is also in high supply, with a huge selection of Macbook memory available. Almost all models are catered for, with 1GB, 2GB and 4GB options to choose from. Prices start at just $12.50 for a 1GB upgrade, though it is recommended that both sockets of the innovative dual-channel memory system are updated with equal amounts of RAM for optimum performance.
