Microsoft isn’t one to shy away from unorthodox marketing techniques to promote its products. And the Redmond company has proved that again, with its latest Microsoft Edge battery life test video.
The video made by the company features three laptops running on the Windows 10 April 2018 Update. All three devices look similar, and Microsoft claims they are identical.
