Microsoft's new operating system Windows 7 launched in late 2009.

In 2010, Microsoft wanted to continue momentum following this launch, by reaching a broad consumer audience.

Target audience: Consumer

All computer users. Primarily PC-users, but including those who may be at risk of switching to competitive computers or may have dissatisfaction with a competitive computer.

Within this broad audience, university students are especially at risk of adopting non-Windows-based computers. By encouraging them to adopt a Windows-based PC throughout university, there is a greater chance they will continue to use a PC throughout their adult life.
