1.1.2. Windows 8 has much improved memory management that will not only benefit ‘Metro’ apps, but the operating system as a whole.

1.2. Cons

1.2.1. the new user interface that is not only hard to navigate to the desktop, but also very confusing to find a way back to the Start menu.

2.2. Cons

2.2.1. Cost - brand new PC/Laptop with software and Win7 around $500 average
