machine is good, OS is a nightmare
on 22 April 2013
This PC is basically fine, and good value. But it came with Windows 8, which made me feel like I longer knew how to use a PC. I wasted hours trying to figure out how to cope with it, so here's some advice on what to do if you get landed with Windows 8: 1. download "classic shell", which will make things more like they used to be; 2. buy a mouse and disable the touch pad, as the pad makes strange, unpredictable things happen as you type (unless you raise your hands like a pianist); 3. be prepared to use cntrl-alt-delete a lot in order to get to the task manager, which is the only way to get out of the problems you'll land in.
