Yup.
 
I had the consumer preview of 8 running on a celeron laptop.
It was very fast on that box.
 
I has Vi-Start on it booting straight to the desktop for sanity's sake however.
 
If MS had not forced metro on us it would have been a home run as it is, many unsuspecting consumers are coming back to the stores where they bought the fancy new windows 8 machine wanting it off the box to no avail. - This comes from people who work at the local retail outlet here in town that have sold some of the windows 8 pcs.
 
I don't know what is in the Koolaid up there but MS better give us back our windows 7 desktop with the speed of 8 or their going to be run over by those whom they fear that caused the metro to eek into the pc in the first place.
 
Apple smart enough to run two os's - one for the hand helds and one for the PCs\
