Notion Ink recommends Windows 8.1

Windows 8.1® in detail
Cain has the desktop you’ve always been used to – with its familiar folders, icons and beautiful Start screen, the Windows® Operating System. It also comes with Office 365 Personal 1-year subscription. Office activation required within a limited time.

 

Make it yours: Photos, news from friends, your favourite apps and sites – put what’s most important to you on your Start screen. Choose your colours and move stuff around until it’s just the way you like it.

 

When you are working on the familiar desktop, all apps you’ve opened will appear in your taskbar at the bottom of the screen. And yes, you can re-size the tiles too!

 

Multitask with apps: Windows® 8.1 lets you work the way you want. Move easily from one thing to another by multitasking on any Windows® PC or tablet. Pull up a Wikipedia article to settle a debate with the friend you’re on Skype® with. Or play a music video while polishing your resume.

 

Skype®: Video, voice, and instant messaging
The always-on app that makes staying in touch with all your contacts easier than ever. Keep in touch with video and voice calls and instant messaging, all from one app. Call any phone quickly and easily. All Skype-to-Skype video and voice calls are free, and your messages are delivered straight to you no matter what you’re doing. Snap Skype® left or right and do more while you IM, video call, or keep an eye on your home screen.

 

Search once, go anywhere: Bing® Smart Search gives you results from your PC, your apps, and the web. Results are in a clean, graphic view so you can quickly get to what you’re looking for. (Certain features unavailable in some regions.)

 

Your Windows®, everywhere: It goes where you go.

Use your Microsoft® account to sign in to any of your devices running Windows® 8.1, and you’ll see the same layout, apps, and settings. Signing in with your Microsoft® Account (which is simply an email address and password of your choice) also gives you access to a world of apps from the Windows® Store, and lets you save, view, and edit your documents and photos online with OneDrive®.

 

OneDrive®: OneDrive® is free online storage that’s built into Windows® 8.1. Save documents, photos, and other files to OneDrive® automatically, and get to them anytime, from any of your PCs or devices. And you can use OneDrive® to protect your files if something happens to your PC.

You can also use OneDrive® to share and collaborate with others, and see your stuff on mobile and non-Windows devices.

 

Internet Explorer® 11: Fast, fluid, built for touch
Internet Explorer® 11 is built for touch—now with larger tabs, simpler controls, and fluid response to gestures. Internet Explorer® harnesses the power of hardware acceleration, so sites load faster and browsing’s smoother.

 

Windows® Store: Load up on apps.
Open the Windows® Store right from your Start screen to browse and download apps for cooking, photos, sports, news, and a lot more—many of them free. Sort by price, rating, and category. Find old favorites and hot new apps.
