Would You Reject A Pre-Built PC Because Of Windows 8

I found an excellent pre-built PC deal. The system uses quality parts and is cheaper than the cost of the separate parts + shipping by $125.00. Plus, I would have to spend time building the PC. The only problem are is it ships with Windows 8 only.
Is Windows 8 a deal killer ?

Yes it is. But if you want the pc just buy Windows 7 and install it. Or find something with Windows 7 installed.

Does it come with a touch screen ?

No touch screen. Buying Win 7 would bring the price close to building it myself.
It becomes much less of a good deal.

No touch screen = no Windows 8 for me.
I just build my own any way and never have issues.

In all honesty any PC that only costs $125 including ANY OS has got to be one big piece of K-Wrap.

More then likely a scam. Especially since Windows 8 cost close to or more then that $125.

I personally would not even consider a PC that cost that little.

Caveat Emptor.

You should read a little closer.

I'd not buy it with Win 8 if it was $300 cheaper. But I enjoy the build part of things.
