The combination of good sensors and simplicity of tapping into the Windows 8 sensor APIs are really going to open the doors to some great apps. In this final review I’ll touch on the core sensors, how they fared, and how to tap into each of them.
I’ve received a few pieces of hardware and software over the years for review purposes. Unfortunately, some of the hardware I receive falls far short of my expectations and hardly ever gets used again. This is definitely not the case with the Intel IvyBridge Ultrabook running Windows 8 Pro that I received. My experience with it over that time has left me extremely impressed for speed, portability, touch and a broad array of sensors.
