Pros: * Fast, my machine cold boots after post in about 3 seconds now.
Cons: * Price, in this day and age, I really think MS should be pushes these upgrades for less than $50 for one version that has everything. Push it out cheap, let people adopt and stop this version nonsense.
Summary: Everything was fine, the only problem I had I couldn't read the serial number they were to small had to use a magnifying glass and that didn't help much. I'm still correcting the numbers and letters on the windows.
Summary: Very nice os. very visually appealing and easy to navigate, especially if you have a touch screen. I actually really like windows 8, even though a good chunk of people seem to hate on it. I upgraded my laptop to windows 8 upon its initial release and did not regret it, which is the main reason i decided to go with it for my desktop as well.
Pros: I really like windows 8. Many cool features and very easy to use.
Cons: not really a 'con', but does take a few days to get used to.
Pros: I love the new features. Lots of cool sidebar functions. The xbox live layout works very nicely with a desktop. Access to xbox music and other apps you might be familiar using, all built into the sidebar and desktop. You can quickly move back and forth. The xbox music is one of my favorite features...basically unlimited album, songlists, radio formation (similar to artist choices like pandora)... I like the user login screen, fancy customization. I don't have a touchs...
Cons: Been using for a couple months and have a hard time coming up with anything.
Summary: Win 8 came preloaded on my Asus G75V and I hated that touch screen panel, I uninstalled it and went back to Win 7 Pro. After 4 months or so some of my programs and fetures stop working so I had to go back to WIN 8 to get updated drivers, WIN 7 just didn't work to good with the WIN 8 hardwear installed in the Asus G75V. While updating the drivers I came across an app called WIN 8 desktop startup menu that look and work just like the startup menu on WIN 7.
