Windows 8.1 Pro - 64-bit

4 out of 5 eggs Windows 8.1 Pro 11/28/2013

This review is from: Windows 8.1 Pro - 64-bit

Pros: The stability of Windows 7. There are ways around the metro menu even without downloading a third party software.

Cons: My biggest complaint is like most, the metro menu. But I have found ways around it and use it very little. The only other problem is the flat look of the windows, don't need the glass look of WIndows 7 but a little more polish would be nice.

Other Thoughts: The metro menu cost the product an egg in the rating. Running a dual boot of Windows 7 pro and Windows 8.1 pro. Purchased because I don't like installing Windows 8 then having to upgrade to Windows 8.1.

MSI Z77A-GD65 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: Great board.

Cons: The SATA sockets are angled at 90 degrees, on my system they face the back wall of the case which makes it difficult to plug in the hard drives after the board is mounted in the case.

I didn't deduct a rating since it is a minor drawback.
