This laptop has been running Windows 7 x64 for a while now and is cluttered with junk (its not my everyday machine).
The specs are:
- Toshiba P300
- Dual Core Centrino
- 4gb RAM
- Dual 720Gb HDD
There was one glitch where after going 100% through the update it just hung on a black screen on 100% HDD activity. I did the power-cycle and it rebooted and setup the user profile without any issues.
I have used this laptop exclusivly over the last 2 days doing things like watching movies, playing music and will confess it feels like it runs faster and with less disk activity than what Windows 7 was doing. This hardware was designed for Windows Vista (and only just in my opinion!).
I find myself missing the start menu less and less as the metro start enables me to get to the required application in less time. I can see Microsoft's vision for what it is, and look forward to the first bug fixes (if not a Win8 SP1) to get this into version 2.0.
To quote U2 for those complaining about the lack of a start orb/button - Your stuck in a moment, you can't get out off.....
