Pros: I built a new PC from scratch around Christmas. Started with a pile of new hardware and ended up with a beast. Booted easily, installed all drivers and updates no problem. It's been 5 months and no hiccups at all.
Cons: Lots of buttons and special do dads that I still don't really understand? lol
Other Thoughts: The EZ BIOS updater is... easy! While checking compatablity of my hardware, I found that to support my CPU the BIOS needed updating. I also read most of the owners manual, trying to figure out the correct way to build this machine. And making sure I didn't touch something that would kill it... So many options.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This beastly, when combined with PNY VCQK5000-PB NVIDIA Quadro K5000 4GB256-bit PCI Express 2.0 x 16 HDCP Ready Workstation video card, is used for some of the most advanced CG work.
Cons: People don't understand that this isn't some gaming card.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Windows 8.1 Pro - Full Version (32 & 64-bit)
Pros: Just like Win7 in every way except for....
Cons: Login screen. Needing Windows Live to sing in. Unable to play DVD's without Windows Media Center. Pathetic App screen. Can't close any apps without using Alt+F4. Not user friendly.
Other Thoughts: I really really wish I would have pirated a version of Win7. My6 winXP disk failed to load on my new build. Win7 update disk wouldn't work on a clean drive. Many problems later bought Win8.1.... It is exactly the same except for the annoying bits in the "start" menu and at the corers. Which can't be removed. I think there is a program to bring back the Win7 interface. I shall hunt for it soon.READ FULL REVIEW
