What are some good features in Windows 8 to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8.
I was about to reply but then I saw you said "good features"...
If you have a tablet or at least a touchscreen it would be worth it, otherwise... the only positive I can come up with is it boots and shuts down really fast.
The problem is its built around "metro apps" the MS version of smartphone/tablet apps. The start button takes you there instead of a normal list of programs like previous versions. And you cannot close any app, just switch out of it because the OS controls that, closing them if you haven't used it in a while. (You can force them closed with task manager but why should you have to?)
I recommend always keeping up with the latest trends so you don't get left behind in technology. That being said, you don't have to upgrade right away. If you are planning on buying a new computer in the next year or so you may save money by waiting until then. Most new computers you buy will already come with the latest operating system installed.
If you use a tablet PC you will probably get more out of Windows 8. It was built with tablets and other portable devices in mind, so it may be easier for you to integrate your devices.

I have now had a chance to use Windows 8. It seems like it is still Windows underneath, but with some pointlessly annoying interface changes and a me-too tablet interface slapped on top. There is still a desktop, but the start button has been removed, I guess to force us to use the new...

What is the best tablet/laptop in one device for Windows 8?I have a smart phone and a laptop. However, I never seem to take my laptop out, as it is quite heavy and I'm also worried about dropping it.
