    Well I use Google Chrome and it works fine. Did you install chromeTouch? That makes Google Chrome work better for W500.

    Nope, I get through the day with Chrome.
    Or you can use the touch version of IE 10 Beta.
    If I'm doing alot of web surfing I'll dual boot into Android
    Maybe when Windows 8 is in full release there will be a cool app store with various games, apps, keyboards, and browsers. Lets see how closed minded Microsoft will be with the store..

    Cause many drivers are not made for x64. There is no performance increase.

    The main reason to run a 64 bit OS is to allow more than 3 GB of RAM. Since the W500 only has 2 GB of RAM and cannot be upgraded, there is really no reason to install the 64 bit version of Windows.
