Is Windows 8 for You?
I’m sure you’ve seen the commercials on TV and possibly even waited with anticipation for Windows 8 to hit the shelves. Or, maybe you’re like me and you don’t really like spending money on computer programs that may or may not make a big difference in your day-to-day productivity.
Although it’s been my experience that the next Windows upgrade doesn’t necessarily become a must-have until you have to upgrade say, Quicken, to manage your bills and you upgrade that program and realize you’re running Windows XP, then you have no choice but to upgrade your operating system.
Or, maybe you’re a Mac person. That’s a discussion for another day.
I’ve assembled a list of links to some of the best reviews of Windows 8 and some of the new PCs and Tablets that run it for you to find out if it’s worth it for you to upgrade, or (gasp) sell your iPad on Craig’s List and switch to a Windows Tablet (blasphemy).
