I haven't seen Windows 8 yet.

We got a new laptop with Windows 8 at Christmas time.  Love the computer, hated Windows 8.  We played with it for 2 months trying to learn everything.  It ended up being so frustrating for everything other than email, that we stopped using it and returned it to Costco.  Now we are trying to find a new lap top with Windows 7, that's not such an easy task.  I work on an older Macbook Pro, but they are just to pricy to buy a new one.  Good luck to you on Windows 8.  Hope you have more success than we did.

I got the free trial version of Windows 8 last June, and have loved it ever since!  The free trial ran out last month, so I had to pay for the real deal then.  I still love it!  :)

Can't you just install Windows 7 on a computer? I bought my laptop less than a year ago, and I love Windows 7.

My MIL has windows 8 on her laptop, my husband said it's very different. He wasn't sure if he'd like it or not.

 My mom just got a new laptop and specifically did not want Windows 8 on it- she has enough trouble figuring out computers!

Glad you're up and running!

I went to a MacBook about 8 years ago, and I would never go back to windows.  My last MacBook outlasted 3 windows laptops.  It's faster, and it ran as fast as the day I got it on the day I retired it almost 8 years later.  I just got a new one in January because it was time, and I bought one with a an HD screen instead of the retina display (cuz you can replace the battery yourself).  And it's amazing now what you get for your money.

Yep, it's more expensive, but worth it.  Trouble free.
