When I heard that windows XP would not have any more support, I called staples and ask if my computer would handle the new windows 8.1, They did a diagnostic on my computer and found several problems. They had to put more ram memory on the computer, install a new drive, which was a third of the usual cost. They downloaded the 8.1 windows. After finishing the download, we found that it would not connect to my network at home. They took it back and started working on it. It seemed to be working, I took the computer back home. It worked for about two hours and started with the same problem. Staples took it back and found it was an apparent corrupted download of the Windows 8.1. I took it back and they redid the installation. Now, After a week, it is working fine. Getting used to the new program, it seems to be working fine. Staples was very cooperative with the problems. They were very fair with the problems that came up.

Thank you for all the work your staff performed on the computer.

Seriously I like Windows 8. So many people bash it because it's hard to use and they're afraid of change. Change is good, get over it. Do you have a smartphone....most likely yes.. you had to learn how to use at that one point. It took me 15 minutes to figure out Windows 8 without reading anything.

Now to the point. I bought my computer (Sony Vaio Laptop around $900 w/ touchscreen) with Windows 8. Oh the upgrade came out, I'll download 8.1 and that was a mistake. Windows 8 was fine. This 8.1 crashes constantly, won't load internet most times, my wireless printer won't connect anymore, Youtube videos hardly work anymore, all of my apps are incredibly slower than before, multitasking in Microsoft Word/Excel/and internet tabs will eventually cause something to freeze. Really? I regret downloading 8.1.. Should have stayed with the 8. Probably the reason I'm still running old software on my iPhone 5. If it's not broken don't fix it.

windows 8.1

Comments about Microsoft Windows 8.1 (1- License) [Boxed]:

I am very pleased with Staple's technical assistants. They were all courteous and obviously well acquainted with the newest version of windows. I had a very difficult time fining and getting used to desktop items I used to find easily on the old version XP. I finally found email. I spent about five hours and still have a lot to find and learn.
I would recommend Staples offer a quick rundown on where and how to find programs. If I would have been given a quick look, I'm certain it would have been easier for me at home. Windows 8.1 is totally different than XP. I was surprised to see such a great difference. All that said, I am totally satisfied with Staples who also removed a terrible virus from my computer. Thank you very much.

I have heard people complain about Windows 8, but I love it. Some of my friends and family just needed to be shown how to use the new operating system to become believers. Once you learn the system, you will love it too.
