    No the start screen. Not the logging on screen. Im talking about the Metro background.

    Also you guys doing clean installs......you don't have to. See? Doing that will allow you to do clean installs without having to worry about the key.

    Well you can now count me in the Windows 8 Club :rockout: :roll:

    I hated Windows 8 when I tried it on the preview but spending some real time working around the in's and out's I find it to be pretty sweet and overall an improvement on the usability of the user.

    Wow! W8 Media Center supports blu-ray natively. Arcsoft can't be pleased by this... I think I'll move W8 over to my HTPC.

    I got windows 8 on my laptop. It definitely is faster than 7. I feel like I am constantly fighting it though. Most of that I guess is because the OS is barely a week since release. Windows 8 screen brightness settings for my screen are completely different than 7. I probably got 4 settings instead of 10 now. No big deal. I am still trying to get my finger scanner working for login too.

    Windows 8 is just a pretty good OS, but allows innovation in the hardware we see coming in the next few weeks. I mean check out the Asus Taichi I posted. That thing will do it all! And you can run an Ivy Bridge Intel i7 in it! fricking sweet! I want to ditch my Toshiba laptop for one.

    Are you running Windows 8 yet?

    How come i get the feeling you used it ? And if yes what one you go for?

    I just used the refresh one back in DP ... and tried the Advance one with restore from image file.Worked by the way.


    I think Erocker was talking about no support in 8 for 4000 and older


    Oh poop silly me ,your talking about the arm/tab/netbook thing above....But still I thought 8 had no support for 4000 cards.

    Work, Media/entertainment, some gaming, but i wouldn't get it if Gaming is the only thing you plan on doing.

    INTEL HD4000 integrated graphics that in Ivy Bridge CPUs.

    Just took a closer look at Taichi. It really is outstanding. Full HD IPS... Win 8 should shine on this piece of tech. Unfortunately will be way out of my price range. Now, what happens when you forget to switch off the back display while you're enjoying some porn in a, let's say, slightly crowded environment?

    haha! Thats sick.

    You shouldn't be watching porn in public anyways!

    Im interested to know the price as well. Atleast for the i5 version as my friends mom is looking to get a laptop, and I told her about these ultrabook/tablet hybrids and she wants one.

    I'm getting high CPU usage from "microsoft windows search filter host" and it won't let me end the process, How do I fix this?

    That shouldn't happen because search in Windows 8 is much more optimized than W7 or Vista search. But if it causes troubles then disable Windows Search and indexing. If you never search files then disabling this service is nobrainer.
