My System Specs


Yeah, something as simple as trying to do a windows update will start to gnaw on you.... there's a metro app, but I'm not convinced it actually works in the background if you switch to something else while it's running, and doing a search for "windows update" doesn't find the desktop version, you have to remember to look for it in control panel.

Overall (and I still refuse to install a program to give me the basic functionality of the start button that MS will either eventually put back, or they'll move on to a different OS), it's usable on a touch screen tablet, but even that is a less than enjoyable experience unless all you want to do is stick to the metro apps.
