New laptops pre-installed with Windows 8 do not use MBR, and make it difficult if not impossible (as far as I have been able to discover) to alter the boot order in the BIOS so a simple replacement of win 8 with win 7 is not a possibility.

I have tried setting up a win7 virtual images using Virtualbox and VMware and both stall very early in the installation because it cannot identify drivers. If I could complete the install I could find the drivers. I suspect the same issues will prevail with a dual boot setup.

IE10, while I have no doubt is an excellent browser, does not run many custom built web applications built for earlier browsers.

As for ASUS not being a hardware maker, they have been manufacturing motherboards for as long as I can remember. I've built PCs from scratch using ASUS motherboards.
