HARRISBURG, PA – Leading North American computer products and consumer electronics distributor D&H Distributing will conduct a free webcast for its reseller customers entitled “Windows 7 to Windows 8:  The Familiar Made Easier” on Wednesday, September 26 at 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. ET.  The event will help VARs familiarize themselves with the differences between Microsoft Windows 7 and Windows 8®, so they can capitalize on the Windows 8 opportunity and help their end-customers make a smooth transition.  Attendees have a chance to win prizes including a Grand Prize package of an Xbox 360® Kinect™ bundle with a copy of Windows 8 Professional, or one of five additional copies of Windows 8 Professional. 

During the presentation, D&H Solutions Specialists Bill Hersh and Larry Henry will directly compare different actions and features of Microsoft Windows 7 to those in Windows 8.  As with many of the D&H Solutions Lab events, the presentation will be followed by a live Q&A opportunity.  The presentation will also be available on-demand at after the event, for customers who may be unable to attend. 

“The more thoroughly we can get our VARs up-to-speed on the capabilities of Windows 8, the more they’ll have an edge against the competition in proliferating this OS,” said Jeff Davis, senior vice president of sales at D&H.  “The seminar will immediately identify the functions of Windows 8 that are even easier than in version 7.  Once resellers can communicate these points in the marketplace, they’ll be well positioned to make upgrade sales.”

Registration for this event has been one of the highest D&H has experienced for a webcast event so far this year.  The D&H Solutions Lab features detailed, close-up videography from both front and overhead angles (e.g., with the ability to zoom the camera view right inside the chassis of a machine), to give resellers an interactive experience comparable to a live demonstration.  D&H customers can log-in to to register, or call their representatives at (800) 340-1001.
