Bought this last night. I (still have) my Windows XP PC desktop & XP Net-book. This new computer is GREAT in that it is FAST, looks great with it's black, sleek look & large LCD screen. Also, it is SO quiet & I LOVE the 'small form' CPU. I have it down, sideways on top of my desk with the large (yet light weight) monitor on top of it. A real space saver!! I also bought a new black wireless Canon printer to add to Window's 8 OS (ONLY because I wasn't allowed to install my other printer (copy/scan/fax) to Windows 8. I have many programs & hardware that cannot be installed on Win 08. My printer, camera, scanner... CD label maker, etc., etc. BEWARE: This computer is NOT loaded with anything...(oh, yea...'cept notepad, I think) There are NO accessories, free-cell, magnifier, calculator, paint, clip gallery, Adobe Reader, Microsoft fax, Office, Word, etc. NOTHING. You have to buy everything online & can't install what you already have!! 'Trial' Office you can download for 9.99 a month OR 99.00 a YEAR!! Please note: NOTHING is *PRE-INSTALLED as ADVERTISED & LED to BELIEVE* only useless games, trials, Amazon, Netflix, E-Bay, Norton, Gateway Shopping etc. (But you can do that on your own! Just Google it) I'll try to transfer what I can from my XP, via flash drive, to Win 08. Oh well, I am going to keep this anyway & have added it to my network. If you have never had a computer, I would highly recommend this OS for you as you wouldn't mind buying everything to add to it; (it's a great shell) OR as a second computer to add to your network. Otherwise you will be very disappointed. User unfriendly. Have to figure out everything on your own, there are NO instructions. This would be PERFECT with Windows XP or any other REAL Windows OS.
