I found this earlier today....


My apologies, but if your system is not on the Windows 8 supported list (http://dell.to/SEbR4e), we cannot know what software issues you may encounter or how to address issues found. We also cannot address the lack of Windows 8 drivers for unsupported systems. Our advice is to return the system to the operating system shipped on it.

Now I know this list isn't entirely correct I had Win 8 running on my M17xR3, But I think its complete BULLSHIT on Dells part to not support a system that's only one Generation OLD! My laptop was purchased from the Dell website in January of 2012!! Thats pretty messed up :mad:

Tablet OS for a desktop/laptop? You guys are crazy!!

We are just upset that our 1 yr old laptops won't get support for the new Windows OS. When I know other manufactures support Windows 8 on laptops that are more than 1 yr old. I might not ever upgrade to Windows 8, but that's besides the point.
