I am looking to buy a new laptop and tried the new Windows 8 end/first of last year and had problems submitting reports. If anyone has recently bought a new laptop with Windows 8 on it, I would really appreciate ANY input you have regarding this.

I need the good with the bad please.

Thanks
Kim

A couple of friends have purchased computers with Windows8, and have claimed its for the birds. Its still too quirky yet with bugs. Your best bet would be to do a search for reviews of the product by owners, on the web. Owners and previous owners of any given product is a good way to decide if its for you.

I recently purchased a new computer that had Windows 8 installed.
I also diliked it.

Did a Google search and found a way to get 7 back into my PC.
No problems at all since then

I also am disappointed and very much dislike Windows 8. new computer 5 days old. Am now bald.
If you can share how to delete Windows 8 and retrieve Windows 7 would very much appreciate.
I was told Microsoft is getting great amounts of reports of extremely unhappy clients and is going to be coming out with an upgrade in the fall. BUT this will COST $$$ to get it.

I believe I'm running both.
My desktop is back to the Windows 7 screen which was so much easier to use

My friend has one and he told me that 8 has some issues. But on the other hand i read somewhere on internet that microsoft launched new version of 8 after fixing few bugs.
