Not booting up.

Summary: Unfortunately, with the CD and code number provided, I was unable to get it completely booted up. Attempts to rectify the problem by e-mail suggestions proved fruitless, and I ended up shipping it back, and am awaiting posting of the refund to my credit card account.
Summary: A real pain in the butt. Takes all the joy out of a brand new computer. Should have been a smooth transition but... Won't let us complete an automatic update so that we can load printer drivers. Frustrating the heck out of my IT guy. Has been more than a week with no printers at all. Upgrades from XP not worth frustration - wish I would have kept XP running with no problems.
Summary: Installed windows 7 32 bit over XP and you might as well buy a new computer and printer and vid card and display. I'm surprised microsoft hasn't reversed engineered its software. Since I have to spend hundreds to upgrade I'm going to buy an iMac instead, before I spend another dime to get win 7 fully compatable.
Pros: Looks nice. Plays a mean game of Freecell...
Cons: Eventhough I had more than enough horsepower to run Win 7 Ultimate 64 Bit, they sytem would lock up tighter than Fort Knox and the only way to get back up and running was to shut the system down. After investigating I found I wasn't alone.
Pros: It's fancy looking and seems Microsoft is inching toward improvement in some areas like simplifying searches and connecting devices.
Cons: Very unstable. It freezes even before you can enter your password. Then you have to start it over and over until your log-in appears and may be it will work. Definitely a pain! I haven't had this much trouble with a Windows OS since Windows 98.
Pros: Flashy, looks like a Mac. I was impressed at first by the beautiful appearance, new taskbar is fantastic but as I used it more and more.... see cons.
Cons: Microsoft removed user customization. Sloppy organization. Drag/drop is frustratingly difficult. Custom sort, gone! To many permissions and the updates, so many updates slowing the computer down. Driver issues are huge,but expected of a new OS.
