Rated 4 out of5 by fromNot bad.I prefer using Windows on all of my PC's and Windows 8.1 Pro isn't bad especially with the student discount. My only gripe about it is that it doesn't allow some files to install no matter what access you give them.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromGreat ValueA great price exclusive for students! I downloaded to a memory stick and installed it to my newly built PC. A Microsoft chat advisor was able to help me through each stage of instillation - great customer service.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromGreat Operating SystemI bought Windows 8.1 pro to install on my Mac. The moment I ran the downloaded Windows exe file on Mac, the installation started. It was very smooth, and It installed in 30 minutes.

Rated 2 out of5 by fromGood OS/Terrible experienceNot easy to install! installation media can only be created by windows 7 or higher device! no use when running something earlier. Once installed the activation features are awful! Does not verify when entering the code from the MS website! Awful. Took all of the joy and enjoyment out of it!

Rated 5 out of5 by fromMuch improved operating systemI know that some people miss the start menu and that some find the new settings and modern UI confusing, but the truth is that Windows 8.1 is faster, more stable, more powerful and with lots of new little features to help the users.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromTerribleI would not recommend windows 8.1 to anyone. Since I had it installed on my laptop it has done nothing but cause troubles and cost me money.
