    Yep I suppose I should update my specs too as I still have just the Sandy Bridge listed.

    right now I am on an Ivy with the i5K 8GB 166 GTX 650 Asus P9Z77-V board Samsung 830 and 7 and the old laptop with what I said it had leaves it for dead.

    The speed of W8 seems to be highly dependent on what hardware you are running.

    The W8 previews booted ~9s faster than W7, on my PC.
    I can't say that I noticed any improvement in program speeds though.
    Don't hate Windows 8!

    I was surprised 8 boots quite a lot slower for me than 7 or vista.

    It takes longer to boot, but runs way faster once it's up. I've got a bunch of USB drives attached, that always slows boot down on my system, and my printer, I have to disconnect it totally or shut it off.
