    I registered as soon as I got the computer but I lost the email. Will they send me a new one?

    Also does Windows 8 have a good youtube app? Chrome is so bad at playing youtube videos is making me cry.

    for metro or desktop? Cause I've heard great things about the metro version. Haven't seen anybody review the desktop version yet.

    To be honest I don't really care about Metro or not, I just want things to work. I know it looks great, because I tried on of those Windows 8 computers at Compu USA the other day.

    Many youtube apps. Metrotube is probably the best.

    IE10 is pretty impressive. My biggest problem is that lastpass.dll has issues on a regular basis. I put that on lastpass to fix though.

    IE10 Metro is immensely quick. My only issue is the inability to use userscripts, otherwise i would use it.

    Any problem loading pages?

    What about ad blocking and pop up blockings? Does Internet explorer even have extensions?

    Web pages load well and quickly too.
    As for extensions i don't know if there are many (or any) for the metro version anyways.
    Without the ability for userscripts it's gonna have to remain un-used for me.

    Isn't metrotube a dead Windows Phone 7 app? I meant Windows 8 ones.

    I got a new laptop about a month ago, but I'm still unsure about upgrading it to Windows 8. I had tried out the consumer preview on my netbook, but that was a bit of a flop. I learned how to navigate the UI a bit, but since the resolution on my netbook was low (its a 2008 netbook :S) I couldn't run any Metro apps. I just have mixed feelings about W8 on non-touchscreen devices.

    My screen resolution is 1366 X 768. Is that good enough to run Metro apps? because it looks pretty bad.

    yes you can run Metro apps. It's the standard on most Windows 8 Tablets. meaning you can also snap metro apps and run metro apps

    Yeah. My netbook has a resolution of 1024 x 768, which is why it didn't run Metro apps. The charging port broke, which is why I got a new laptop.

    You have of course tried chrome? Didn't like it?
    Chrome works lightning fast on my brand spanking new self put together PC, granted for the price i would expect that.
    On PC you need to also remember that we are talking about browsers that support so much more than what you have on iPad.




    I have been thinking to upgrade to W8 on my desktop (tablets are a another thing), but it doesn't at this point really bring me anything else than some driver problems with my Asus Essence ST sound card. Have nothing bad to say about Windows 7.

    Agreed IE10 is very good once you get use to it. I never use the desktop version unless I need Flash. Having used an Ipad for so long I'm use to not needing flash anymore. Overall W8 rocks! I installed it on my wife's pc and she picked it up right away after I gave her the basics.

    Pretty much the worst browser I have tried. Youtube runs like ****, there's a 30/100 chance I get the "oops Chrome couldn't load this page".

    My computer is really low budget though, it cost me only 300 bucks brand new but even so, I could play Tera "decently" and Firefox doesn't have problems running videos.

    When I was using consumer preview I had a HUGE problem with the way IE handled favorites. Specifically favorites were stored as individual tiles on your start menu which is very **** IMO. Please tell me they fixed this.

    A favourite mouse scroll bar thingie appears if you left-click at the bottom in the URL field IIRC. Took me a while to figure it out, I was also astounded that favourites were supposed to be start menu tiles but you don't have to have it like that. Just left-click in the URL field and you'll see what I mean.
