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
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...
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.

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.
