Being a regular computer user, I took the complaints about Windows 8 with a grain of salt. I figured far more experienced, advanced users hate it, but that regular, everyday users like me would be fine with it. Windows 8 is absolutely hideous. I'm pretty sure it was made this way to compel us to all buy Windows 7. On top of the ridiculous "apps style" start up that makes it weirdly difficult to find anything, complex layout that makes it hard to figure out how to do simply tasks like turning it off, and the insanely irritating pop-out charms you can't shut off, Windows 8 deletes all your stuff with updates. No, I'm not kidding. If you get ANY product with Windows 8, I highly recommend just buying Windows 7 right along with it. Otherwise, in 2-3 days, you'll want to throw your new laptop out a Window.
