Upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 8.1 64-bit as part of a new acquisition Calculator

Windows 8.1 OEM 64bit full version (DVD-ROM)

Customer Review

Hello There,
I switched 8.1 64-bit as part of a computer-new acquisition on Windows. I had opted for the OEM version because it seemed to me the purchase price in order. I would note that I use a Intel Xeon 5540, 12 GB RAM and a SSD have a Dell Precision T5500, after which Windows has been deployed.

The installation went quick and without problems. For the individual setting of my desktop I took a whole day. It differs in the course designs of Windows XP from but who works with open eyes and takes the time will determine so incredibly different, it is not again. The logical structure of example Netzwerkeistellungen, graphics resolutions and management features can be found where it has always been and it is also examined.
And, in Windows 8.1 has the task bar at the bottom again. The Start button, which is now no longer so, has two functions. By clicking the left mouse button to get into the much hated tile system. On the avoidable main screen you have the most important programs such as Word, and the like. Can you make yourself, if you like it. Clicking pointing down all programs, which are now called Apps. Windows offer but the possibility to go right after the start automatically on the desktop. You do not use the tile system, if you do not like.

A click with the right mouse button on the Start button to open the options as Device Manager, openable network environment ect.zu, or restart the computer, or downloaded to drive. As usual.
For me, Windows 8.1 works extremely stable and reliable. When everything is done and my tool programs are finished loading, so my memory is used an average of 1.8 to 2 GB. For me, the resource saving.

I do not regret the change from Windows XP to 8.1. One has to move with the times, try new things and allow changes. You will be amazed how much familiar things appears only once again in a slightly different designs. Sometimes even I had to smile.
