Re: Windows 8: Microsoft lifecycle


[re: camieabz] [link to this post]
 
If this were 4-6 weeks ago Id seriously consider opting for the refund and scouting around further than Lenova. The processor on that system is impressive for the price. But Im not sure Id opt for Dell these days. Ive had- or been responsible for-- several Dell systems from Win 3.1 to XP. After Win 95 my experience of support and call-out engineers was not particularly happy. That said, I paid more for my Dell Win 95 desktop than for most systems available today so I suppose were getting what we pay for. Think I'm going to go for the C560.

Yes, it's a better price for sure and there doesn't appear to be any big drawback. The SSD is a serious advantage.

What was the PC with the driver problem?

It's an HP.

Personslly I would forget the price and pick it on the specs

It's always tempting to go for the higher price one, feeling it must be better, but it isn't aways the case. (excuse the pun)

FAQ number 3 here shows the difference between the Mainstream and Extended support models. For the most part it makes no difference to consumers whatsoever as the things lost are primarily for businesses.

Im definitely going for the cheaper system, David. The spec is too good to miss.

Good pun smile
