I'm gonna start looking for a SSD now, only downside is that my board only supports SATA2 and not SATA3. Though that's still pretty fast compared to old HDDs.


yeah, i only have SATA2 and still my SSD is screamingly faster than a HDD. I installed Windows 7 on it from a USB stick in 10 minutes.

SATA2 is fine for a single SSD, and don't get any bright ideas about installing a SATA3 card. The cost of high latency will make it not worth it..

Only if the $40 upgrade lets me go from 32bit Win7 to 64bit Win8 Pro, then sure. But I don't know if it does.

It's the same product key. You can happily switch arch. if you wish.

To-day there is an update for which, if your machine had met freezing issues, you would be too happy to download and install:

If you had used the "Install HyperV" or "Disable DynamicTick" methods to stop the freezing issue, install the update then un-install HyperV or Enable DynamicTick and see if the update works, DynamicTick, if enabled, helps in slowing down battery drain.

MS had offcially announced that win8 RTM release in August, so I could just hope that it may RTM next week, not the launching. :)

nah was talking about office

shouldn't it RTM close to Windows 8 ? or else WinRT would be officeless at launch(wouldn't imagine they would ship beta software with production machine)

Office RT may already be deemed final by the time Windows RT RTMs. It has far less applications to deal with.

Or they'll release Windows RT with the beta and update it via Windows Update or something. Curious to see which route they'll take.

At ‪#wpc‬ the Windows 8 RTM timeframe was disclosed. I'm happy to announce that ‪#VS2012‬ will RTM in early August with Windows.

windows RT and office 2013 will rtm in a few months, windows rt was supposed to launch at same time but it is complex. 3 weeks till win8 rtm, i'm guessing it will leak 1-2 weeks later as oem's usually get it before technet/msdn. I'll wait until there is a 1-click tool to disable metro for win8 desktop.

Windows 8 might RTM first and then Windows RT and Office 2013/RT will RTM after that and together.
