I've had my computer about a week now and am still making adjustments to the OS but overall I enjoy the ability to make a tablet out of the computer and utilize the touch screen. Windows 8 is very similar to Windows 7 but they hide things in different locations making it difficult and instead of a start button to open programs they utilize "apps". If a person is at all adaptive I think it is a good choice. For the rest look for a Windows 7 OS or wait for 8.1. I'm 58 and have moderate skills.
Twist transforms into a laptop when you need to type, a tablet when you're on the go, and a stand when you want to share presentations. When you're ready to browse, bend it backward into a tent for a close-up view.
