What not to buy on Black Friday: Windows 8 PCs & laptops

November 18th, 2012 · No Comments

I decided to take a break from Windows 8. I thought if I took a breather and then came back to Microsoft’s newest operating system on a brand new PC, an ASUS CM6830 with a 3.4GHz Intel Core i7 processor, NVIDIA GT 620 graphics, 8GBs of RAM, and a fast 7200 RPM 1TB hard drive, I might see something different. You’ll find this model, and dozens of others, at Best Buy and other retailers, for great prices on Black Friday. They all have only one problem: They’re all still running Windows 8 and it’s just as bad as  I remembered.

How do I hate thee Windows 8? Let me count the ways.
