Forget about any pre-installed bloatware that slows down your PC.
Signature PCs come with Windows Defender—no annual contracts and free updates. Non-Signature PCs come with trials that can cost hundreds of dollars over the lifetime of your PC.
According to a 2014 Probit online quantitative study commissioned by Microsoft of 800 PC shoppers, customer prefer Signature PCs:
88% of users would buy Signature again and recommend Signature to family and friends.
95% of future PC buyers want a PC without junkware and built-in anti-virus protection.
“…costs the same but has no third-party promotional preloads.”

“Whatever joy you might feel on unboxing a new PC evaporates quickly if you have to spend hours setting it up. The out-of-box experience with a Signature PC is strikingly better.”
“Unless you want a new PC that’s bogged down with bloat, trialware, or other junk, take a look at Signature. It proves a significantly better experience.”
“It’s a remarkable improvement compared to the same PC I would get at some other retailer.”
“Microsoft's Signature Edition laptops deliver the 'clean PC' experience you really want”
Behind the scenes
Take a sneak peek with Ken Fowles, Director of Microsoft Signature Lab, and hear what makes Signature great.
Every Signature Edition PC meets Windows hardware certification requirements:
We measure and check keyboard design quality, keycap travel and usability.
We spend time hands-on with each model of touchpad to check design quality. In addition to hands-on testing, we have robotic equipment for measuring touchpad quality.
We verify the screen resolution and brightness for every model to ensure it meets the highest standards.
Hardware component verification
If necessary, we disassemble PC models to validate the accuracy of published specifications to ensure the device meets the advertised specifications.
The Signature team checks additional areas as needed – for power, heat dissipation, sound, weight, and other design characteristics. We also measure overall PC performance.
