    Could have something to do with the fact that you have a 6-core cpu and an ssd disk, I don't know...but many ppl are claiming to have the same issue.

    i agree .so it not a win8 issue ,but a computer not yet ready for win8 ,at least you need more ram maybe .also what antivirus are you using ,did the computer come with win8 or did you upgrade.

    kind of releated ,im typing this on my macbook that will not update to the latest os10.7 via the app store ,but i could buy 10.7 and install it that way ,but im told it would run but with issues ,so,i will not spend money to buy os 10.7 i will stick with a good working os 10.6.8 and enjoy the laptop .
    good luck
