Microsoft's Video Tour of Windows 8 Hardware

If you're looking for a quick visual tour of some of the Windows 8 hardware options for yourself or your customers, Microsoft put a nice one online this month.

Microsoft's U.S. OEM chief Peter Han leads the five-minute walkthrough in a showroom on the Microsoft corporate campus. He runs through some of the best features of some convertibles, tablets and all-in-ones. Models include the Sony VAIO Duo 11, Dell XPS 13, Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13, Toshiba Satellite U945, ASUS VivoBook, ASUS VivoTab RT and HP TouchSmart.

Plus, it's not every day you get to see a convertible shown off on a table with a grass surface.
