My System Specs

Default

So far I'm fairly happy with win8 on a touch screen. Driver support out of the box was great (everything but my gmeter), The mail app picked up gmail without any issues at all (blackberry OS anybody?), finding a free ebook reader through the app store was painless (works well), the Metro touchscreen browser works well, and as has been mentioned, it does actually boot really quickly.

OTOH, getting the toolbars to appear by swiping the edge of the touchpad is a bit finicky, and the feature for "closing" apps (L/H swipe to display current apps, select and flick down the app you want to close) only seems to work about 25% of the time.
