Can you still return it? I've decided to wait it out as I simply cannot find anything about Win8 I like. So no new laptop for me - yet. Maybe MS will come to its senses and give us options instead of trying to take us where we do not wish to tread.
If you have $100-$150 you can find a legit copy of Win7 to install on it, but that's just wrong IMO. Same w/ all the other 'make-it-work-like earlier-versions types of apps out there. Best of luck my friend and stay safe tonight!!
Hmmmm, please email me on where I can find a legit full copy of 7. I'm soooooo pissed!

Hubby did manage to, sort of, kinda, not so really, get it to look like 7 but still a total piece of crap!

You were warned about Win 8, take the dumbest thing MS ever came out with back.....
I know.....sigh......... I told hubby to never, ever again, let me go shopping when I've had a few lol!
Sadly, they don't have any systems available that run 7, unless I want to spend over a grand. The real irony is that the young lady who was answering my questions agreed, completely, that 8 SUCKS!
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that MS snaps and smells the extreme unhappiness of it's customers and comes up with a fix and/or new version, PRONTO!

You'll have to Google for it as many places no longer have it available. Best Buy told me they were told to remove it from their shelves about a month before Win8 hit the market. Its out there, probably Amazon. Prices sure vary though.

FWIW, there are still some Win7 LTs available depending upon where one goes and what features one wants. I saw some at Office Depot last Thu. Office Max has some too,and probably Staple's. Sam's does on-line too.

Well, I kinda got the impression that returning it would be a problem. I'm just trying to keep in mind that when the one that I really want gets cheaper, I'm giving this one to hubby lol!

Happy New Year, Free Formers,

We hosted a lovely party last night. Those of us who play, played Bach, Pachelbel, etc. I have not enjoyed myself this much for a long time.

Hope yours was great too, and even better wishes for 2013.

Perhaps, but if its a 'pewter you don't like because of the OpSys, to heck with them. That's what return policies are all about. Most have like a 15 day return, particularly during the holidays.

Thank you. It cracks me up to see the judge-its up so early. Some people must have woken up on the wrong side of the barn or someone peed on their haystack and oats.

My son would have been in heaven! I bought him a classical acoustic for Christmas. I also bought him and my daughter a ukulele. Don't know why the midget wanted one, as she has NEVER shown any desire to express herself musically! I just think she's jealous lol!

A Happy New Year to you and yours, Lobo!

Oy, I don't know. I still hate it! Hubby is trying to figure it out. He accidentally put it in airplane mode and couldn't get online, go figure! Just exiting something you're in is a feat! Damned, stupid, Windows 8!!!!!

Lol, depending upon its cost, I might also be inclined to put it into "Airplane Mode", and I don't mean suspended either<G>.
