Default Bought a new laptop

So yesterday the other half was looking at tablets (For what I don't know but I assume the Jones down the street have one) and I was glancing at laptops since mine is on it's last leg and I run my business off of it. Mine the plastic outer case is broken and I have it taped together but otherwise I love this thing. I usually buy the cheaper ones because they do everything I need.

So I picked up an Asus thing with no DVD Drive and windows 8, I have since realized I am old fashioned and hate new stuff and change, using this new PC is like using a phone. I am trying to like it but for now it can sit with my new Iphone in the "I don't like new technology box"

Let me know what you think of Windows 8. I hear 60% of the customers don't like it.

My wife was also in the market for a new desktop. She didn't want windows 8. To avoid windows we had to buy a reconditioned desktop with windows 7. All the new ones had windows 8. She is very happy with her new system which in turn make my life easier. For my needs I use a Samsung chromebook.

I've tried windows 8. Move back to 7. It's superior, at least till they get the bugs worked out.

I have had 7 for a few years now and love it, never had a problem. I here on 8 I can use the old theme and shut off all the extra popping up crap. I am on my old computer now because I like it more.

Careful, doing that will only prolong the transition and make it more difficult.

I do too, but that's mainly due to my going to bed early and eating soft foods. It's good for digestion.
