Intel is again seeking to define what a quality computer user experience looks like. Like it did when it launched the Ultrabook platform to make thin-and-light PCs mainstream, EVO aims to make it easier for buyers to know their new machine is up to current specifications.

In this podcast edition, we’re joined by Eric Chong, enterprise client technical sales specialist at Intel, to tackle what solution providers need to know about EVO. with its EVO platform.

We discuss:

  • what EVO is, and how it relates to vPro;
  • how EVO is a spiritual successor to Intel’s Ultrabook standard;

  • requirements for PCs to get the EVO branding in terms of size, bezels, battery size and charging speed, machine performance and more;
