Microsoft Windows 8.1, 32/64 bit Retail Box worked as advertised and I was easily able to upgrade to Windows 8.1. Unlike most people I think Windows 8.1 are superior to good old Windows 7. I use a gaming machine with no-touch inputs (in fact, I've even used Windows 8 on a touch device...) and I still stand by this statement. There were a ton of improvements in the UI despite some of the initial drawbacks, but by now Windows 8.1 Update has everything covered. There is the app store, but that is definitely touch-focused so I haven't delved into it too much... Windows 8.1 is the future and expect your next laptop to have multi-touch (which you're gonna want to use with Windows 8 not 7), so get used to it!
The DVD came very fast and was in perfect condition. Everyone needs to get Microsoft Windows 8.1, 32/64 bit Retail Box so much better then Windows 7, 8 or 10! Everything still has 100% function on a LOCAL ACCOUNT. I can watch NetFlix, turn OneDrive off & on without signing into a Microsoft Live account. :) Install Windows 8.1, run some hard drive, memory, browser benchmarks, make a BACK-UP IMAGE. Upgrade to Windows 8.1? Absolutely!
I downloaded Microsoft Windows 8.1, 32/64 bit Retail Box and thought I might have a problem going to the real Windows 8.1. Microsoft windows 8.1 Upgrade from Windows 8, Windows Vista or Windows 7, solved that problem. My computer had Windows 7 ultimate before the free download. With the free download I could not download photos to ebay as well as other functions. Now all is well. Although I am not the biggest fan of the new format, 57 year old male, I have decided that it is here to stay and I am learning to like it.
