    An 1100T getting 7.9....not a chance. Not even my 3770K running at 4.6GHz got a 7.9 in Windows 7 and that tears strips off an 1100T. I can edit the right file and make all my scores 7.9 as well
    gotta agree with you there.

    I don't trust the WEI. It's based on your lowest score. Why not average the score?

    Actually this is not at all a rating of your true Windows Experience, but rather a rating of your combined hardware specs. They don't take into account fighting with windows UI like the Metro or whatever they are calling it now. They forced you ( out the box) to hit many more buttons to do the same things you can do in Win 7 for fewer buttons. This ruins the Windows Experience for me.

    I'm going to do everything I can to make Windows 8, work like Windows 7. I may be resigned to deleting this partition and installing Windows 7 instead if I cant get this thing to take all my tweaks the way I need it to.

    Therefore the WEI is a sham and not ever to be trusted. We need a better rating system, one that takes real time user experience into account that also includes ease of use and operating system design. The WEI I believe was designed on a faulty benchmark scheme more for bragging rights than any real tally of user experience. They don't even detail how they arrive at those numbers for each area.

    As shown in z3r010's post, Microsoft assumes incorrectly that if you have better hardware with higher specs you will have a better Windows Experience. This is BS and doesn't take the faulty design/ease of use of the operating system into account at all. The WEI is nothing more than psychological manipulation to try to get more people to buy more expensive hardware IMO. Certainly looks that way to me.

    I have high 6's and 7's with one 5.9 and my lowest 4.6 for desktop graphics - Are you freaking kidding me? My AMD A-8 quad core with 8 gigs of ram coupled with my discrete ATI Radeon 7640G with 2 gigs of video ram makes this puppy sing and dance. Desktop Graphics low score? I can play FarCry3 on high settings, do video editing, and have Firefox open with 300 active tabs and no slow downs at the same time. This is out the box, I have yet to make major tweaks like permanently disabling tons of unneeded Microsoft services - I'd give my rig a solid 8.0 for user experience and I'd be Right. ( I auto logon and bypass the lock screen/start screen/ metro screen with Classic Shell) - The WEI Is a Lie.

    Don't worry, your Graphics is still higher than mine (2nd photo), but the 1st photo is just awful!

    I wasn't even planning to post in this thread, but out of curiosity I decided to run the WEI tests. My system freezes solid at the "Direct3D 9 Desktop Assessment." No keyboard or mouse. Not even the hardware reset button on the computer case would work. Had to press the power button until power was cut to the motherboard.

    Rebooted, and it repeated. Not really interested in trying a third time, but curious why it causes my system to freeze.

    Wonderful. (not)
