Steve Ballmer’s Windows 8 rig measures 80 inches, so… does that do anything for ya?
To all the executives out there, consider what you have hanging on the walls of your office. Perhaps it’s a fine work of art — maybe even an original — but it most certainly isn’t an 80-inch Windows 8 computer. That curious distinction belongs to Microsoft CEO, Steve Ballmer, who has eschewed use of his phone, notepad and a more practical email solution in the name of awesomeness (or, perhaps compensation for those lagging Windows Phone sales.) Initially said to be a machine that’d be marketed and sold by Microsoft, the company has since clarified that no such effort will take place — although the door remains open for independent vendors to step in and sell similar behemoth Windows 8 setups. Unlike most tablets, we’ve a hard time imagining ol’ Steve throwing this one under his arm as he scoots out of the office… but then again, the man can afford some mighty good chiropractors.
