Microsoft shows off the evolution of the Windows 7 PC on video

Earlier today at Computex in Taipei, Steven Guggenheimer, Corporate Vice President of Microsoft's OEM Division, was on stage and walked through the Microsoft ecosystem and while doing so, also showed off the video that you see above.

The video above shows how the laptop has evolved from when Windows 7 was first released back in 2009 and since then we have progressed from the netbook to the ultrabook. Considering this was only over three years, how Windows 8 products will evolve over that products life-cycle should be a sight to behold.

Also announced at the same presentation was the availability of the second community technology preview (CTP 2) for Windows Embedded Standard 8:
