I have been using Windows 7 very comfortably for a long time. I love the product and I love the presence of my start menu. I use my laptop/computer for a causal use as well as for professional work.

This ultrabook is pretty new (11 months old) and it has Win 8 Operating System. Though I use my laptop as a tablet most of the time, I still use Desktop mode ALL the time for everything I do. I personally have not found a reason to switch to Windows 8 modern UI modes as I just love desktop mode. Let us learn what can we do when Chrome is missing close button.
