iBUYPOWER named Microsoft 2010 OEM ‘Innovation Partner of the Year’
iBUYPOWER is known as an OEM computer and laptop manufacturer with an eye toward the gaming market. This year it seems, Microsoft is recognizing the company for its multi-touch notebook systems – the only full sized notebooks on the market with multi-touch screens – using the MAGIC software. With iPods and iPads quickly gaining ground in the touch-based interface realm it’s nice to see someone adopting this approach to gaming focused systems.
Not convinced that touch controls would work for hardcore gaming? Well how much more hardcore than Starcraft II can you get? Here’s a video of someone playing Starcaft II using the MAGIC interface on an iBUYPOWER system.
