    Hi,
    A new OS from Microsoft staple a new flavour, tempting to go for, well here`s some things for your thought. Windows 8 Consumer Preview has all these:
    Bing-powered apps, including ones for travel, news, and sports
    Improvements to Mail, Photos, and People apps
    Increased Start personalization
    Better multiple-monitor support
    Better Windows Store navigation
    New family safety and security functionality
    Enhanced touch support for Internet Explorer 10
    To run Windows 8 Release Preview, your computer will need a processor with a clock speed of 1GHz or greater, 1GB (32-bit), or 2GB (64-bit) of RAM, at least 16GB (32-bit) or 20GB (64-bit) of available hard drive to install the program, a graphics card that supports DirectX 9 with a WDDM driver. For select features, you will also need multitouch support, Internet access, and a screen resolution of at least 1024 pixels by 768 pixels.

    And keep in mind installation of win8 is irreverseable so if you decide to go back to win7 you will have to clean the disk and reinstall win7.
    So, that`s all.
