The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which research analyst Lyons George and industrials editor/analyst Isaac Pino discuss topics around the investing world.
Microsoft has been in the news a lot recently, and rightly so -- the company's newly introduced Surface tablet represents a serious threat in a rapidly expanding market. But that isn't all Mr. Softy is up to. A recently leaked (and quickly removed) document suggests that a powerful revamp to the Xbox, which happens to be the world's No. 1 selling console, is coming soon. Toss in a slew of innovative upgrades on the search engine front, and it's clear that Microsoft is as aggressive and ambitious as ever. Watch as Lyons and Isaac discuss why Silicon Valley's original darling might still be a terrific buy.
