HP Envy dv7 notebook...
the most advance piece of technology in the house... besides Windows 8.
I got this brand new awesome laptop, that does more then I would've asked from a computer... besides windows 8.
im working with I think an inch or an inch and a half more screen then I was with my sisters laptop, much more hard drive and ram and crap and... windows 8.
I've also hooked up my TV to this thing and been dual screening and MAN is it awesome, but... windows 8.
...im sure you've noticed some one thing has been bugging me about this computer, and you'd be right. Windows 8 is soo stupid at everything, it's so inconvenient at things that are supposed to be easy to use (especially Skype) being that some important type programs have a "Windows 8 mode" which just makes it look flashier for touch screens (cause y'know... they wanted to make a system so people who happen to use touchscreen don't have to adapt as much to a desktop interface) problem? not EVERYONE is using touchscreen, matter'o'fact, im absolutely sure most people use normal interface.
well, nagging about small several inconveniences aside, it'll take a lot of getting used to, and I don't really think I'll ever really like windows 8, but I LOVE this computer! no denying it, it's awesome to draw on, it fast, and huge, got a nice camera, and it's surprisingly good with gaming*, and it's got a finger scanner!
... cuase y'know... thats totally necessarily... it was on sale.
It's just, I had no idea windows 8 existed when I was computer shopping, and if I had already seen reviews, I probably would've looked for an older computer... but ever since I began dual screening, I got too attached XD (you never feel such an awesomeness until you're playing TF2 or COD, or drawing on SAI, or watching youtube FROM the computer, THROUGH the TV, and still doing something else on the main screen... Idunno, I was blown away)
So yea, getting familiarized with with this thing was practically what took my Spring break. funfunfun.
(* I was told, by the store people and by the internet that this thing is not suited for gaming, and that it couldn't run programs made before 2013 at all... they. were. wrong...)
