I'm interested in a W8 machine, but won't get one unless it is touch screen.

Windows 8..... your going to be sorry you bought it

The specs on this machine are pretty good given the price but Win 8 just kills the deal. If it was Win 7 I would probably buy one.

@mhendrix: Why is Windows 8 such a dealbreaker? I've been using it since release on my desktop without any issues whatsoever. The fact that this ultrabook has a touchscreen to support even more of it's features makes it more of a deal.

I don't know about the quality of this laptop, but I can say that you won't be sorry if you get Windows 8. It's just another customizable OS that, with a little effort Google-ing and educating yourself, you can make it perfect for you.

Why should I have to go in and learn to customize an OS to make it work the way I've been used to for the last 10-15 years. I've used it and it's terrible and if you like it then that's good for you but I think the majority of users will hate it. I recommend for people that haven't used it do some google-ing and read the reviews and not just one. Here is my favorite:

And I recommend that people take the bad with the good. Why should you have to go in and learn to customize an OS to make it work the way you've been used to for the last 10-15 years? Did you do the same thing for Windows 7? Aero, ribbons, and a myriad of other new features were implemented, and Windows 7 was received with acceptance and people excited to learn and use the new features.

Not everyone is going to be happy with something, but cursing a product that is just as innovative, efficient, and productive as the last iteration is ridiculous.
