Windows 8 was released for production on the 26th October and is the latest version of Windows following Windows 7, Vista, XP, 98 and 95.  Windows 8 is a radical departure from previous versions of Windows in that it has been designed, and optimised, for netbooks, notebooks and tablets and the user interface (desktop) is totally different; the most obvious difference is that the START BUTTON and START MENU are missing!  For many users a standard Windows 8 computer, from a mainstream supplier could be a frustrating experience and although some will be willing to learn the new interface, many will not.

Help is at hand however as here at PCs & Settle Computer Shop we have developed a range of Windows 8 computers, in partnership with a software development company, that have all the usual Windows 7 type features such as a standard desktop and a normal start button and start menu.  Our Windows 78 computers are largely indistinguishable from Windows 7 computers yet have all the speed and reliability benefits of the Windows 8 operating system.

Not content with making Windows 8 computers more user friendly we also install a wide range of free useful software such as Office, Picture Editing, Desk-Top-Publishing, Disc Burning and Email applications. Mainstream branded computers tend to be supplied full of AdWare and TrialWare software that stops working unless additional licences are purchased.
