Thanks for the warning.

I always laugh because whenever I get set to perform a specific task, I'll get a pop-up telling me "Windows 8 has an app to do that for you!!!".

Is it wrong that I talk back to my computer???
Of course, you can do what I did. I stuck with Windows 7.

There are things I like about it-the touch screen is great, and some of the apps are terrific (especially Solitare). Seriously, I really like Outlook 13. But don't mess with my Ebooks!!!

Blossom - I still have Vista on my old-gasping-for-its-last-breath laptop! I much prefer it to this newer Windows 8 laptop!! Even on that older machine, when I hooked up my peripherals, it installed them perfectly (drivers, etc.) and I was good to go (same with my Win7 desktop). With this Win8 laptop, I had to search around and find my old installation cds for my printer, my external optical drive, etc. I hadn't seen those things in 8 years lol.

I discovered today that the NC library now allows cover, grid or list view on my wishlist, which is nice, but unfortunately it now allows me to see only 20 books per page (I have about 80 books on the list).

Do Not Download the Overdrive app for Windows 8!!!!!!!
I use the Win7 OD software on my Win 8 tablet in desktop mode.

Me, too! Unfortunately, the Vista OS is slightly corrupted, and it has a tendency to overheat rather quickly, but I think I'd rather get another W7 netbook than a W8 machine from your comment.

I've never had overheating issues with Vista. That's usually a hardware issue not software unless you got something that is maxing out your CPU which can bring up the temps quick so can a bad add on video card. My Quad stays around 36c on a hot day and 34c regularly. Even if I am gaming which I no longer do the temp was 38c at most which surprises me because my particular CPU average is 50c when maxed out. A good case, fans and airflow is key. It also helps to clean the PC out every couple of weeks specially if you have pets.

Poorly design if it's overheating and crashing but most laptops do run pretty hot but that is normal. My Toshiba netbook gets hot enough to burn your skin. It has XP on it. You can get a cooling pad to put it on it cost around $20 to help with overheating.

My next PC will be laptop now I am not into gaming I don't need a huge desktop anymore.

Blossom - my Vista machine is a Toshiba - and my second one. I love that brand. I used the cooling pads for a while but they don't last long. Now, after I've had it on for a while it just shuts down (usually when I'm in the middle of doing something on Calibre). I think my fan is giving out. The Toshiba has been a wonderful little workhorse, though. I used to take it everywhere.

I was in college when I used my first Toshiba - a hand-me-down from Dad. It would act up every now and then (from old age) and when it did I'd just take out the hard drive and whack it with a hammer. Put it back in and I was good to go! When I told my Dad, he about died.

Don't do that! Whacking hard drives is not good.

Hmm My cooling pad has lasted me the life of my netbook. I will never buy a Toshiba again though. My sis has a cheap ACER netbook and it's no where near the specs of mine and hers out performs mine. I got mine because of the bigger battery and the keys are spaced apart making it easier to type with but try running a youtube video on it and it chokes.

Oooh, I'll stand up in defense of Toshiba laptops! I have one, and my son has one. Love them, and they don't run hot at all. BUT, they are the running intel chips, not AMD. Everything I have read says the i3,i5 and i7s run much much cooler than any of the AMD processors in laptops. In a desktop you can get enough ventilation to keep the AMDs cool. Between my son and I, we have 4 AMD desktop computers. Never have a problem with heat on them.
Just my 2 cents!
