Shells helps you transform any device in a virtual desktop

Whether you’re a developer or you simply don’t want to spend money on a physical hardware, you could use a Windows machine to test or run any software.

Virtual machines are pretty tricky because they tend to use a lot of resources and they can’t simply run on any devices.

Well, what would you say if we told you that you can have your own personal Cloud computer in only 5 minutes, and it would be accessible from any device? This is all possible with Shells.

What is Shells?

As we mentioned earlier, Shells is a powerful desktop-as-a-service cloud platform that allows you to access a fully activated Windows machine from any device.

That’s right, you can access your Windows 10 system whether you have a Chromebook, a MacBook, a tablet, an iPad, or even a Smart TV! And you can do that even within a simple browser.

For instance, this could be a great option for those who want to offer their employees or part-time workers a safe and accessible from anywhere platform to work on without any risks.

Available anywhere in 5 minutes

The most exciting part about Shells is that you can have your Windows virtual desktop running in less than 5 minutes from the first time you visit the website.

That’s the fastest possible implementation of a Windows system that you can get right now, apart from actually buying yourself a laptop or a PC with preinstalled OS.

Run any app from any device

Do you want to use your favorite Windows application and you don’t have access to your desktop? It’s easy! You can run it on Shells and access it with your phone, tablet, or even your smart TV in your living room.

Also, if you want to run some Windows apps and you’re stuck with your iPad, there is not a simpler way than running it on your Shells virtual system and have it on the Retina screen in seconds.

With Shells you’re not limited by any device or operating system. You can go exactly the way you want it, always.

The advantages of using Shells

First of all, it’s the easiest, most affordable, and risk-free option to get a full-fledged, working Windows 10 computer without buying a physical PC.

It takes only 5 minutes to get your system running from the moment you visit the Shells official website.

You can use the Windows machine when you need it for the amount of time you need it. If you just want to test some software or work on a paper for a few weeks, you have the flexibility to do so.

You only pay for a fixed period, and you’re not stuck with a piece of hardware that will depreciate immediately after you buy it.

Everything is powered by the cloud so wherever you access the files from, they will always be there. You can start working on your phone on a train ride and switch to the TV in your living room at home.

How do you download and install Shells?

  1. Sign-up to one of the available plans. You have a 7-day, money-back guaranteed period so you can test it.
  2. Head over to the Shells download section and select the desired platform.
  3. A small file will be downloaded. Click on it after to start the installation.
  4. You will be asked for a destination folder for the installation. Leave the default one unless you have other plans.
  5. The installation is extremely fast and you’re ready to launch the app.
  6. The only thing left to do is to enter the account credentials you got after you committed to one of the plans.
  7. That’s it, your virtual PC is ready.

In our timed test, it only took 3 minutes to get ourselves a working Windows PC at our virtual fingertips, but we guess we were a bit in a hurry.

That is if you want to install an app. You can also run Shells from within any browser a lot easier, without installing anything on your device, just by logging into your account.

Get an affordable full-fledged Windows computer

We can’t stress enough the fact that a PC or a laptop, a Windows 10 license and all the software will bring you to a hefty price.

The hardware will start depreciating from day one and after a while, you won’t be able to get half of the money you invested in it.

With Shells, not only that you decide how powerful your computer should be but also what amount of time you want to use it and the calculus will always bring you to the same result: saving money.

As we’ve already mentioned, it took us only 3 minutes to get to our working system and once we got there, all the apps were working smoothly.

Of course, being a cloud system, the flow of your access depends on your Internet connection speed, but our system was running perfectly.

That is because all the apps are running on Shells’ servers and not on our device so only the graphical interface is used.
