These will sell the Microsoft Surface, Windows Phones, and other computers running Microsoft’s operating systems.

The goal is to get the latest Windows-based devices in front of as many shoppers as possible. Best Buy is the No. 1 retailer of PCs in the world, and Microsoft wants its customers to be thinking about Windows products rather than Apple iPads or Android tablets.
