Upgrading to Windows 8 from 7 worth it? - Page 8

post #71 of 72
After beta testing win 8 for so long, after its public release I just reinstall my win 7 ultimate.
Win 8 has its percs but also has a learning curve and its problems yet.
Not saying DONT buy it, but if you have win 7 and realy don't need the touch screen and newest thing out there,
Don't worry run win 7 and enjoy until its realy time to upgrade.

So, my new lappy the Yoga 13 has windows 8, For starters, at adding the start menu, i went with classic shell and the metro skin, it matches the rest of windows 8 perfectly for me, also the largest difference i've noticed is speed, It out speeds my desktop with its sata 3 ssd, with a Msata 2 ssd. Somewhere in the range of 8-10 seconds from a cold boot. Also one more thing, Its probably not worth it as much if you don't have a touch screen to go with it. Just my 2cents.gif Good luck with it.
