I can't list everything we got here because I can't remember them......LOL
We don't do Christmas but we do start buying up a lot of "stuff" starting at Hanakkuh.
Well, maybe before that........LOL

Wife did get me a new laptop. I couldn't figure out why I was having so much trouble.
We also bought the wife's mother a new all-in-one computer. It was Windows 8.
We took it back. After that I knew why I was having such trouble. Windows 8.
My sister in law tried to fix m-i-l's computer but couldn't do it. Windows 8.
Other sister in law said her and her husband were going to have a new computer built with Windows 7. M-i-l now has a WOW computer. Problem solved. It is built on the Linux.

I'm getting around in mine now, but I think it's because I'm going through Google Chrome now. I hate Windows 8. I have Google Chrome on my mac-mini desk top so they are both kinda similar, sorta. I don't know anyone around here that likes Windows 8.

I still long for the Windows 3.1

Windows 8.1 is working fine

I had to get a new laptop recently, and got a HP Pavilion with Windows 8; however, we had Staples (where it was purchased) upgrade it to 8.1 for only $9. You can download 8.1 yourself, but letting Staples do it leaves them responcible for any hick-ups!
8.1 has all the recent fixes Microsoft made to 8.

It took a bit of getting used to, as it opens to a page of app choices, but once I installed Google Chrome, I was back in business with my bookmarks and gmail all there.

Something to consider~

from what i've been told----windows 8 works best with a touchscreen. without one, the "classic" mode is recommended.
but linux is excellent. no windows 8 for us.

I don't have the touch screen model, Theresa, and do use the 'classic' mode.
It works for me.

I also got a new lap top for Christmas and found this site to have some great tips to make it feel like my old machine a bit faster.

Santa Brought You Windows 8.1? Here is what to do first.
