I know a lot of you dislike Win8 but I happen to really like it. My Alienware 18 laptop has Win8 on it and works great with all my games. I'm wanting to buy a desktop now and am looking at the Aurora ALX but they don't offer Win8 on the Aurora. Has anyone heard of when they will start offering Win8 as an option? I refuse to spend $3.5k on a brand new system to get a 7 year old OS. I could buy Win8 after the fact but that's another $120-$200 for something that should come with a new brand-name pc.
