Well I digress on windows 8....didn't wont to. Some of my metro apps would just quit working or not work at all. Then I kept getting some memory errors when rebooting or shutting down. That didn't start untill I installed MS Office 2010, then updates would roll in and the error message would go away for awhile then it came back.
So I've decided to go back to Windows 7 until Windows 8 is ready. The sad part about this move is I had my metro screen tweaked and I could flow through it with ease. I was really liking 8.

I doubt it'll be "low" Low to me would be like no more than $80. But since MS is charging tablet makes $85 for the stripped down RT version, then the full desktop version will be it's old $150 OEM / $200 retail MSRP again (or maybe up to $30 less in reality).

Ya gotta love the P/s, cost $~500.00 back then, is 9.5 inches long and weighs a ton, just had it rebuilt last year a month before warranty ran out[5 year].
