    I also have the stock 60gb version of the computer. Is that okay and does that have enough space to fit everything?

    Isn't the promotional price for Win 8 $40?

    I can't say I like it, but only because Windows 8 is just way too new right now. All the workarounds to really make it work for EP121 are more of a headache than necessary. It's a nice layout, but it also just doesn't feel like a computer at this point. It runs apps that practically any phone can run. It makes apps out of the most insignificant things like a "news" app, a "movie" app, a "weather" app, I mean it makes it feel cheap almost. It's cleaned up, but it's clearly an interface to be used on tablets. Not PC Tablets. Honestly, it feels like they could have just created a Metro layover on Windows 7.
