Good OS but.....

Summary: For $139 dollars one would expect to be able to "own" the OS and be able to use it and upgrate the system. but you can't do that. Linux Mint is free and you can put it on as many computers as you want.
Pros: 32 and 64 bit program support
Cons: OEM version. Can not upgrade your motherboard or wifi card . Doing so constitutes the PC as a different computer. Cannot reactivate OS legally.
Summary: when I resolve the update issues, I'll retool my review.
Pros: good price
Cons: having issues with registry errors. update function is cranky. might be virus related. had to hook up with Microsoft to resolve the major issue of: after updates, the OS would not start. Have had to do numerous restores. Also, getting the OS to id my graphics card so I can 3D, has been fruitless.
Pros: Most stable version of Windoze available; I can leave running (standby when not using) for months without problems.
Cons: Cost is ridiculous, especially considering that Linux, BSD, and Haiku are free & OS X costs 20 bucks. All these other OS'es are superior to Windoze. I need this to run CAD software; eveything else I use is available free.
Pros: Windows works for most things, even dual screen, and programming.
Cons: Windows is slow to load and its programs like Word are also slow. Windows is also more expensive than Linux and prone to BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death). It is difficult to disable features such as Internet Explorer and Media Player, which are just too much trouble to use. Recently, I have noticed th...
Summary: It found 188 updates & tried to install them all at once. Thirty or so crashes later, it still can't install IE 9, 10 or 11, but that may be due to my hardware config (AMD A8, no video card yet). Another 8 or so updates don't apply to x64 machines, had to hide them.
Pros: It's Windows 7. Product support in effect for a few more years. Lots of eye candy. Lots of software available. Fast.
Summary: I installed this over windows vista then installed my Quickbooks 2003 which would not run on win pro 7 but after installing win xp mode and windows virtual machine quickbooks seems to run just fine. every ting was 32 bit which might have made this possible.
Summary: "Trying to help out my school, I ordered this laptop recently. The good? It arrived 3 days sooner, it's not installed with garbage software, the hardware feels good and strong. The bad? Spent 4 hours of my life only to find out it doesn't have an internal wireless card.
Summary: Just because the page says that it is not a re-install dvd, does not mean that it isn't a reinstall dvd, because I did indeed receive a reinstall dvd. Contact the seller before you buy to verify that what they are selling is the correct item.
