5.0 out of 5 stars Impressed, 8 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro (CD-ROM)
Bought this after finding out that my PC was slow because it could only use 4 out of its 8 GB RAM due to using 32b Win 7 instead of 64b. The cost was about the same to upgrade to Win8.1 but had reservations due to some of the bad press because of the change to the Start Menu etc, but I am surprisingly impressed. For a start my PC is massively quicker and I've managed to find some clips on the web to show how to configure Win 8.1 so you can use it with the traditional desktop. As with most MS products it does have its irritations, some of which I've managed to resolve via 'Googling' for help, some are still annoying, but overall I still give it 5 stars. One thing I would say, when upgrading to Win8.1 it saves a copy of your Windows folder which should include all of your files so you shouldn't have to spend a weekend backing everything up to external HD's like I did.
