In anticipation for this year’s increased Windows 7 adoption among businesses and consumers, Lenovo recently launched Enhanced Experience 2.0 (EE2.0) for Windows 7. The second generation of the Windows 7 performance and optimization program is exclusive to Lenovo’s wide range of Think and Idea-branded personal computers (PCs) preloaded with Windows 7, and features faster Windows start-up and shutdown time, robust security tools and rich web conferencing capabilities for business users.
Vicky Agorilla, Country General Manager, Lenovo Philippines said: “The release of Lenovo PCs equipped with Enhanced Experience 2.0 provides an ideal opportunity for companies to realize the benefits of Windows 7 as part of their PC refresh cycle. These organizations will enjoy a positive experience through Lenovo and Windows 7 with faster boot-up and shut-down times as well as better productivity for businesses.”
