New AO7 with Win8 Blows Away MacBook Air, AWESOME! I just got my Series 9 AO7 with Windows 8 and it is nothing short of Awesome! In August I bought a 13″ MacBook Air, which revolutionized my business travel experience with its slim profile and light weight, and for the most part it is a very satisfying laptop. The problem for me with the Mac was that I mostly use Microsoft Office programs, and Excel on a Mac is a true nightmare of biblical proportions; slow and not at all user-friendly. That was my first Mac experience and if not for the Excel issues I would probably be very happy. The Series 9 has all the great multi-function pad features of the Mac, but this 15″ has double the Ram plus the latest 1.9 I7 processor and it is blindingly fast. Win8 is taking a little getting used to but the learning curve is very fast if you are comfortable playing around a bit. The weight difference between the 13″ Mac and 15″ S9 isn’t noticeable and the bigger screen is quite welcome with a length profile that is less than 2″ different. The S9 case is…

much better with windows 7 installed This is a great laptop. well built. strong feel. super cool look. really fast boot time in seconds. The only th;ng I really couldn’t stand was windows 8. was willing to deal with it but then i found out that my work VPN was not compatible with win8 so it had to go.It took a long time to figure out how to make this computer boot from USB so I could install Win7 so i’ll give some instructions here:1. boot computer and push F2 repeatedly to enter bios2. hit arrow key to right and stop at Advanced. Disable Fast BIOS Mode3. tap over more to Boot tab and disable secure boot; change OS Mode to CSM OS4. Select Device Priority and ENTER, then change Boot Order making USB first5. F10 to should boot USB.
