This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit
Pros: Installs fine.
Links up easily to your Skype/hotmail account. (everything's connected, and its pretty convenient)
The new task manager looks nice.
Feels a bit quicker and more fluid than 7
No problems with game installs or compatibility (yet..)
Cons: Takes some getting used to.
Hard to find the things you used to find with just a few clicks. Now its in a tangle of new menus and 'apps'.
Apps don't like to close.
They tend to hang open in the background even after you think you closed it, which sucks if you're using a low-end system or laptop where resources are limited.
The 'start' button is a lie. Its not really the start button. It just takes you right back to the apps screen.
They've removed a lot of customization features, like fonts. You're stuck with one font now.
Other Thoughts: If you can get past the weird UI style and how they're trying to dumb down everything, its basically 7 with a fresh coat of paint.
Worth a try if you're bored or got the money to upgrade, but if you really love 7.. stick with it.
You're not really missing out on anything.
This review is from: PC Laptop 6D USB Wired LED Optical Game Gaming Mouse Mice 500 1000 1600 DPI CS
Pros: Feels very nice in your hand
Easy to switch around the dpi
The lights look pretty nice
Very nice compared to what you'd expect for the price.
Cons: The plastic looks and feels a bit cheap.
Feels like it needs a bit more weight to it.
The lighting is a nice novelty, but i'd like to be able to change the colors instead of just blue.
Side buttons are a little touchy sometimes.
Other Thoughts: Other than the overly long shipping time (I've ordered several things from China and other places overseas, and this was easily the longest i've ever waited) , I've got no real complaints.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Plenty of muscle for whatever games you can throw at it.
2 months of pure gaming and throwing everything I have at it, and i've still never seen my processor usage go past 90%.
The little stock fan that comes with it works just fine.
Even comes with its own little pad of thermal paste. Didn't have to buy any extra.
Easiest CPU installation ever.
Other Thoughts: With summer getting closer, I might invest in a larger fan for it.
The one it has works fine, but I'm paranoid about all the heat that might get to it later this year.
