Mine weren't overpriced. $800 for an Acer Aspire 23" with a 3.2 GHz i5 processor, 6 GB of RAM, 1 TB hard drive, NVIDIA GeForce GT 240M graphic chip set, and a 1080p touch screen display. They're just for watching stuff in the bedrooms, and as they can wireless stream 1080p video and display it natively I feel they were a steal! And the built-in speakers are really good too! Not like most such devices.

It's just an extra perk now since I'll be able to test Windows 8 touch screen functionality on them. Hardcore power users will want a tower of course, but all-in-ones have their place.

The first flat-screen display I ever bought was a tiny 15" for $1,500 lol! Oh how times have changed!

Yes, you are correct! They do have their place there are quite innovative and functional to some, if not most computer users out there! But I shall still hate them. Just like my girlfriend's Macbook Pro...

That does seem like a good deal!

It seems recently they have dropped Aero theme.
I like that decision if it means they are focusing on performance more than eye candy.

No more aero theme? So if don't want to use Metro, it will look like windows 1.0?

Windows no longer supports Vista/Win7 gadgets, as you'll only find a few on their official gadget page now. I assume they won't work with Win 8.0...forcing users to use Metro's gadgets.

I thought of using Win 8 but with Metro disabled. Now it doesn't seem like an appealing option.

I know I am a microsoft hater but I have to use it but why the hell did they think that the metro idea will pan out, now it will be all right if they turn around and one official release date and say fooled you desktop users here is the desktop version of win 8, then just maybe I might up date ... after my boss gives it a test run

Unless you have tablet I see no point in using it. But we will no for sure when it is released. Get a copy and demo it for a week is what I would recommend.

Windows 8 must be nearing release soon, right? there must be aiming for a 2012 release date. I got a feeling it going to sell badly.

yeah I also think that it will sell pretty badly, but I also hopes it sales badly, but I look forward to the many flame wars this will cause between Windows users and other people

Microsoft has a track record of releasing good operating systems every other time. Windows 7 was good, so Windows 8, by definition, is terrible. ;)

I thought Vista was good too. But i wont be buying another OS for some time only got Windows 7 a few months ago, and Windows 8 looks like it should be only for tablet PC's not a desktop, although it is the first OS which lets you use RISC and CISC ( I beleive).

I use about any distro I get my hands on, but I am currently using Ubuntu 12.04 with unity striped out of it ... I hate unity about as much as I do the metro system in 8

I... wait, what?

You like the changes Windows 8 is bringing? You're actually the first person I've seen that genuinely seems to do so.

Personally, I can't stand it. Bleh.
