Ratings and Reviews

Rated 1 out of5 by fromWindows 8.1 Purchase problemsSpent 5 hours to purchase Windows 8.1The worst site I have ever purchased anything on in the last 20 years. Microsoft did have a good site many years ago but now it is absolutely horrible to deal with. In future I will buy my products from Ebay. So much easier.

Rated 2 out of5 by from8.1 does not half 1/3 the APPS GOOGLE PLAY & AppleAfter using this a month, I am really disappointed I can't get even 1/3 of the APPS that GOOGLE PLAY & apple has! Soo many banking apps, games for kids, general apps they have on the other 2 ARE MISSING here! I can't get ANY of my 5 banking apps.... or numerous other apps I wanted! I wish I would have known ... otherwise I never would have purchased this dumb 8.1!!! Dont waste your time getting it!

Rated 4 out of5 by fromLoved the speed, but the layout ...NO!Great sped boost on seven, but the layout was more in keeping for tablet users and those pc user who have touch screens, I did love , it was a great boost to my system which was only just coping with seven, but now I'm using 10 the perfect blend of both 8.1 and 7!

Rated 4 out of5 by fromfastest Operating System I've usedI like the layout of Windows 7 better but Windows 8.1 is so fast and zippy. I am very impressed. I have personalized Windows 8.1 the way I want it, so I'm happy.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromA giant step backwardsI bought this installed on a new HP touch screen desktop . Two weeks later and Im still trying to get it up and running . Lost hours trying to find my way around the system and installing printers etc. It's not as intuitive as Apple .If only we could get the windows 7 screen8.1 a giant step backwards
