No, as a general rule always wait at least a year on a new OS. WIndows 7 is solid, why switch?

I'm in a good position to wait until next year, when I plan to get a new touchscreen laptop with the OS. I do wonder about something tho- will the ability to use the touchscreen extend to working with programs like Photoshop or MS Office? I haven't heard yet...

It's not too bad once you remove all the metro features. Not sure if it's worth the upgrade though...

I got it for $15 but didn't upgrade.
Figure for that price I'll just wait until they work out all the bugs first.

By far this is the fastest OS (with a GUI) I have ever used. Server 2012 is the same.

Side by side tests of Windows 8 Consumer Preview with Windows 7 Enterprise beg to differ.

In fact, on my test machine, Windows SEVEN was slightly faster.

I can't tell. Everything runs fast on my newest notebook that I picked up last month.

3rd Gen. i7, 32 GB RAM...

What Vid card is in that? or what is the model number if you don't mind me asking.

Nvidia Quadro K2000M

2 GB of Video Ram.

It's a Dell Precision M4700. After having an XPS, I'll never have anything other than a Precision if I'm getting a Dell. This is my 3rd Precision. The XPS had a lot of nice consumer features, but it just wasn't built for someone with my usage profile.

Is your usage profile "I press the power button and expect it to turn on"?

If so then yes, it wasn't built for you.

Yeah. I thought I was getting a bargain, but after a year and half the hinge cracked along the lid, all the way through the bezel. I still use it at work, but it's a stationary unit.

This new Precision is loaded for bear... but I had to load it up to get to a price point where it qualified for .99% financing. It'll be in service for at least five years.
