This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 Professional 32-bit (Full Version)
Pros: Stability: has been comparable to Windows 7 if not better.
Speed: Modest speed. Faster response time from Notification Area Icons.
Security: built in antivirus
Cons: The introduction of Metro brings a learning curve and is definitely intended for the tablet environment. It has no place for the desktop computer. Especially when considering the lack of a start button.
Metro is my only frustration with Windows 8.
Other Thoughts: The new minimalist look to the desktop and windows has grown on me.
There are obvious ways around the new start environment, some are fortunately free. My current favorite alternative is Classic Start Menu. With it I've disabled the "Active Corners" and skipped the Metro Screen while replacing the missing start menu.
I highly recommend going to a store to demo this OS.
This copy of Windows 8 Pro was installed on a Gateway P-6831FX machine. Specs: 4GB RAM, Intel Core Dual 1.83GHz, GeForce 8800M GTS, 7200rpm hdd.
Pros: Fits perfectly on the memory.
Cons: None - I think? I wish I recorded some temperatures before applying the heat-sinks.
Other Thoughts: Be careful when removing the strip covering the thermal paste. Some of the paste didn't stick to the copper because I removed the strip too quickly.
Also, it would make sense to remove any stickers covering the surface you'd apply the heat sink to.
This review is from: Killzone 3 Playstation3 Game SONY
Pros: The game play is amazing and made this purchase worthwhile. I'm also very satisfied with the online play.
Cons: The story wasn't at all that jaw dropping. I was left with a very neutral feeling after finishing the campaign.
Aiming can take a while to get used to.
