Last week in celebration of Minecraft Earth’s early access rollout, we unveiled the Mobs in the Park pop-up experience in three locations around the world – Hudson Yards in New York City, Campbell’s Cove in Sydney and the Queen’s Walk in London – granting players exclusive in-game access to the holiday-themed Jolly Llama mob. The community’s response to Mobs in the Park has been humbling over the first weekend, and we can’t wait to see even more reactions leading into the next two weekends.

Each year before the holidays, I take a look at all the Windows PCs our partners brought to market over the past 12 months and make a list of some I think would be great gifts for family and friends. In 2019 Windows PC capabilities and the experiences they enable continued to evolve, resulting in beautiful, sleek and powerful devices that offer outstanding displays, high-quality sound, more connectivity options than ever and exceptional battery life. There are lots of PCs to choose from, so it’s easy to find a great Windows PC for everyone on my list.
