ing SUCKED. The thing crashed ALL the time and NONE of my web browsers worked right. Maybe a clean install would have been better but the only reason I got it was because it was cheap to upgrade. I called MS and demanded a refund. They did a "return" of my electronic purchase. I won't be using windows 8 again. It was worse than windows ME.
On topic, good price for max Payne 3. I would buy it if I didn't have a backlog but I'll wait for $10 since I have other games to play. It should be dirt cheap this holiday with the new consoles coming out. In fact, everything should be.
A fresh install is always the better way to go man unless you want to preserve your old files etc. I initially choose the upgrade option, and it was Ok at first. I then created the recovery drive, and did a fresh install. Simply flawless. The only issue I ran into was that my Bluetooth Driver doesn't work in W8. I looked into the issue and I was supposed to uninstall the driver while I had W7 on there...Not a big deal since I don't have any Bluetooth enabled devices that I want to sync to my laptop. I tried W8 on another HP Ultrabook that I was going to give to my mother and sister as a birthday present. It performed decently, but it was somewhat slow because it didn't have an SSD in it so I returned it the next day. MS finally gave me the refund for that copy a few days ago or so.
