Hi All

My x51 arrives tomorrow (fingers crossed) and I'm not sure if I should save some cash and run windows 8 defender along with the occasional scan using malwarebytes or just get norton 360? Any advise would be appreciated.

I wouldnt put any Symantec product on my machines ever again, but that's just a personal opinion. They are managed so bad it hurts to just see them. On the other hand, I have no idea how Win 8 Defender works.

If you really want a commercial product, I'd suggest you go with ESET, otherwise any free antivirus pretty much does the job nowadays.

I was a huge fan of Norton for years. Then it became a resource hog and became a burden. I switched to AVG for a couple of years and then someone suggested to me Norton 360. I was reluctant at first but gave it a go. Turns out that they fixed whatever resource issue it had and not to mention computers have changed a lot since the last time I had used it.

I am very happy with Norton 360 and recommend it to everyone that asks. I never have had any issues with Norton products other than what I stated, then again I do use it like a power user and only use/load/install the things I want or need, which is pretty much the firewall, the anti virus and the utilities.

UK can you tell me when you ordered your X51 and did arrive earlier/later than what they told you? Ordered mine last week and trying to gauge how close it will be to their approximate delivery date. Thanks.
