4.0 out of 5 stars newest updated version, 17 Aug 2014
the latest updated version, running at 4x 1.8 ghz. doesn't mean its perfect but it irons out the buggy slowness i noticed in display models of earlier version. windows 8 is huge and won't run properly on anything under a quad processor, so beware alternatibe products running core i3 processors or celerons.

SAPPHIRE AMD R9 280 Graphics Card (3GB, DDR5) by SAPPHIRE

d-c-fix® Static Cling Window Film (no adhesive) Du&hellip by d-c-fix®
pattern a bit louder than it looks in the pic. adheres easily to a window if first wetted in warm water. squeegee-dry in place. the roll i received was very plainly "seconds" as there was a repeating blemish down one side, and as it was meant for a window exactly 45cm wide, i can't trim the blemish away. make of this what you will....

when viewed from utside it looks like you have a window filled with false fingernails.
