  • Summary: great Product only problem with it is that there is only one product key for both the 32 bit and the 64 bit. If you install the 64 bit and use the key then you have to purchase another product key to install the 32 bit

Installation Asks for Microsoft Account

Chris, B&H Photo

  • 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

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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Summary: I would wait or windows 9 if you can. I had no choice and had to get 8.1 the GUI is clumsy and it's made for touch screens. I use it in desktop mode only. The "modern" apps that come with it are very basic and you feel as if you have little control. In desktop it runs rather well.

  • Summary: I have been using Windows 8.1 for about a week now. It is very different but I am getting the hang of it. At first I didn't have an X at the top corner of the screen but I updated and that is there so make sure to update.
