Win 8 ruins it 04/11/2014
Price, design, materials, touchscreen, decent performance, ports.
Windows 8 is worse than Vista. There. I said it. I can't blame Asus for W8s flaws, but I do believe theyre partly to blame for my inability to upgrade to 8.1. When trying to update, I'm informed that the install can not continue until I uninstall Cypress Trackpad. I see nothing by that name, so I uninstalled everything that seemed like it might control the trackpad and still the same error. Ironically, the trackpad is complete junk as well. Every Windows COA should work for all previous versions of Windows so you can roll back from the pile of eggfarts that is Windows 8.
I can't even begin to express how bad Windows 8 is. I just...I can't. It makes me sad and disappointed that MS will probably ride the barf-train that is Metro for at least a few more versions before they finatlly give up on it for their desktop OS. If I worked for MS, I don't even know if I could stick around through this mess. I would quit. I would quit and I would specifically mention Windows 8 and Metro as the reasoning. You want to use Metro for phones/tablets? DO IT. DO IT AND ROCK IT. But seriously...Windows 7 is probably about the best OS ever created and at that moment you decided to completely change everything for the worse.
This bunk trackpad jumped on an inadvertent touch about 6 times while I typed this.
