We have upgraded to PCs -- and everything runs much faster and smoother. And no, I didn't reformat, I upgraded in place. The only thing that bugs me is that I can't use the snap interface, since my resolution is only 1280x800. So Windows 8 apps are pretty useless for me, since I cannot multitask with them. Rebooting now just takes a few seconds --- that alone is worth the price of admissions for me.
And I didn't have to look for a single hardware driver.
