    It should work, as long as your hardware is compatible. If it had windows 7 on it, then you should be fine.

    The app store should also work, but I honestly haven't used it much.

    I'm thinking the apps on the store were made to work for any computer or tablet, so you shouldn't have a problem getting apps. Besides of course if your hardware is not fast enough and so on (usually gaming apps require more sophisticated software than the average net book has)

    But either way, don't worry about it not working on you net book. Chances are, if Windows 8 installs, it'll work fine.

Windows 8 Installed Twice on Netbook in Installation & Setup

Oh, it installs without a hitch, comes up, runs fine ... just don't try running any Metro apps because most of them won't work - the screen resolution I have is something like 1024 x 600 (fine for this device) but that's too small for most apps. The desktop is fine but virtually nothing else can be...
