  • Summary: Take it from me would have really liked a more friendly user program. Too many windows to synch or get accustomed. Having a hard time getting computer to recognize components of new program and finding old files (pictures or documents) which were not supposed to be affected.

Installation Asks for Microsoft Account

Chris, B&H Photo
12 November 2014
  • Excerpt: Installed easily on my empty hard drive. However, the installation does demand a Microsoft account (which is used as the OS account). I find this a little annoying for a PC OS. A bit of googling shows possible workarounds, but I haven't tried those yet.

  • Summary: Better than Windows 8, but this is nothing to be excited about. Installation is quite easy, and switching around major components won't always require a reinstall which is nice. Hopefully Windows 9 will be better...
  • Pros: Boot to Desktop, Fake Start Menu Button
  • Cons: It's still Windows 8, Metro UI

Microsoft Windows 8.1

Matt, B&H Photo
13 June 2014
  • Excerpt: The windows 8.1 operating system works pretty well when installed on a Mac Book Pro Laptop. I'm currently running OSX Maverics and Boot Camp in order to use windows as my alternate operating system. The only major draw backs are that I've been having issues with windows setting the screen brightness too dim at the maximum brightness setting...Also, not having a touch screen on the Mac Book Pro limits a lot of the user friendliness of the windows operating system.

Fine for web and email use. Steep learning curve beyond that.

  • Summary: First off, my ebay buying experience was excellent. I was an XP user and was deciding between Windows 7 and Windows 8. I was reluctant to move to Windows 8 based on all the negative reviews. However, the negative voice in our world always seems to be the strongest so that along with the fact that the folks at the electronic stores could not give me any specific foundational reason other than "Don't do it...go with 7" led me to go ahead with 8. Am I disappointed, yes.

  • Summary: The operating system is alright I suppose, that is once you get a app to get your start button back. Supposedly it starts faster than windows 7 which I cannot confirm because my new computer also has a SSD which I can say the computer restarts in about 10 seconds(mostly because of the Solid State Drive).

Great value if you must upgrade/works as promissed.

  • Summary: The Windows 8 Pro is exactly as described, inferior to earlier Windows Products such as Win 7 and XP Pro, but superior to Win 8.1. I hated to update to it but my work required me to do so. You can't easily access apps which in previous versions was located in the start menu. Trying to navigate between windows is much slower, you can't use the picture viewing or editing program nor exit from the app with 1 click.
