Have you ever been embarrassed by your PC but not dared to upgrade? Is your PC so old it's not worth stealing?

Rufus Hound, has launched Windows: Your PC Mate, a national campaign continuing Microsoft's 'I'm a PC' theme. Throughout November, Windows will be giving away PCs to the most deserving cases via Facebook and Twitter and a tour of the UK. Rufus and the Windows team have matched unsuspecting owners of out-of-date, old computers with shiny, new laptops from The Collection complete with Windows 7 and Office 2010.

Rufus' mission has taken him up and down the country where he will play 'PC cupid' and ambush PC owners with a free upgrade and tech makeover using the best and most innovative PCs available today in The Collection from Windows - 22 best-in-class of the season PCs running Windows 7 across five categories, to suit the wide-ranging passions and demands of modern living.

Rufus will hit the streets (and university campuses), all in the name of technology, visiting the following cities:

London - 1 November
Bristol - 8 November
Manchester - 10 November
Birmingham - 22 November
Southampton - 29 November

For those who know someone too embarrassed to upgrade their PC or who themselves have a PC so old it's not worth stealing, then get in contact with Rufus and the Your PC Mate team via the WindowsUK Facebook and Twitter sites #YourPCMate.

Although technophiles have little problem navigating their way through the myriad of options available in the PC market, many of us are daunted by the upgrade options and often find it difficult to know which computer we actually need. Insight by Windows 7 into UK digital lifestyles and PC ownership revealed that 72 per cent of us found it difficult to purchase a PC because of the overwhelming choice.

Whether it's the best PC for film, music, gaming, or fashion, the winter collection from Windows showcases the latest innovation in design, performance and colour across multiple form factors - laptops, desktops, tablets and all-in-ones - from all PC manufacturers.

The Collection can be viewed online at: and PCs from The Collection will be available from all major PC retailers including PC World and Curry's, John Lewis Partnership, and Comet.
