It’s that time of year again, Black Friday is just around the corner with Cyber Monday and Small business Tuesday right behind.

So Windows 8 is finally here and I got it day one. Typically I like to wait a bit before things get released and get the latest reviews.

Perhaps the most drastic change for Microsoft since Windows 95 comes Windows 8. A metro style user interface that looks sleek, loads fast and has barely any resemblance to any Windows operating system before it… and it’s coming out tomorrow.

So get on Amazon quickly to nab your copy before the sale ends. But what should you expect? Well, the Windows 8 reviews are out and we have a few things for you to look out for while you find your way around this new operating system.
