Microsoft Windows 8 Professional 64-bit (Full Version)

1 out of 5 eggs Just Say No 12/27/2012

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 Professional 64-bit (Full Version)

Pros: not applicable

Cons: The worst platform ever released hands down. I regret purchasing a laptop that came with windows 8, it is the worst purchase I have ever made. It is constantly freezing, it is not user friendly what so ever. Who ever came up with this idea should be fired, and everyone who though, "wow this is a great idea!". It literally looks like Lady Gaga and Play-Doh Pete created this nightmare with a classroom of middle school children. I am repulsed to say the least. I really would like a windows 7 cd sent to my house so I can uninstall this trash from my computer.

Pros: Great price, decent specs... shiny?

Cons: Windows 8 is horrible, I think I should be paid to have to use this repulsive platform. It is extremely inconvenient and absolutely not user friendly by any means. You have to hit the start button and basically search everything to get into your computer. The graphics card on the computer is extremely outdated and does not keep up with games well at all. I can't even play sims 2 which came out almost 8 years ago! The mouse pad is extremely sensitive, Lenovo tried to duplicate the finger controls of an ipad, it just doesn't work. You'll be moving your mouse or typing and end up closing your window or spinning it somehow. Fortunately you can disable a majority of these features. Its also too far to the left so sometimes when you're typing the mouse will start to wander. The USB ports do not work on all devices, I cannot use a USB type mouse, even when you install drivers it will not work. The disc drive does not work, I cannot even install the drivers for my surround sound computer speakers. You can place the disc into the disc port and nothing will pop up, so then you have to go through your start menu (thank you windows 8) and search for my computer and manually open the cd, however sometimes that will not work so then you have to right click on the disc and open the contents, and that also sometimes does not work. Lovely.

Other Thoughts: I am extremely disappointed in my purchase.
