The equivalent cost of a 1TB drive back then (had they existed) would have been £5,000.
That's a nice deal mate. How's Windows 8 treating you?
So far, so good. I've been trying a few free AVs to see which do/don't work. Currently, I'm using PCTools, but would be far happier if Avast! worked (unfortunately, it doesn't).
I've also managed to activate, but haven't unlocked any of the disabled features yet.
As regards drivers, I've found that W7 drivers work (at least, in my case, although it could depend on your hardware).
