I haven't bothered learning the Windows 8 user interface and have managed well with use of Windows key + D and Windows key + X to get back to a Windows 7 type interface (together with Alt F4 for closing any Windows 8 apps that happen to open). Once there I've downloaded all the open source / free software which I prefer to Micro$oft etc - Firefox, OpenOffice, VLC, Skype, GIMP etc - and all is working well.
There have been a few little niggles:
- after connecting to wifi (especially different wifi hot spots) it took a couple of minutes before I could actually connect to a site over the internet. However, I reckon that this was due to the mcafee virus software that comes with it, and since I removed that and installed AVG instead I haven't had any problems.
- the mouse track pad is very sensitive but the sensitivity can be reduced via control panel, or easily switched off completely via Fn F7 if you use a separate mouse.
- on one instance the charger became very hot, which worried me somewhat, but this doesn't seem to have recurred.
I decided on this PC based on the spec vs price, and haven't been disappointed.
Integrated graphics mean that it's not a great choice for gaming or video editing (I'm sticking to the PC for that). Otherwise, it's pretty good value for the price.
That said, if you can, get rid of Windows 8 and the bundled software and install Windows 7 in its place.
