Been using a Lenovo ThinkPad Twist for about three weeks. Love Windows 8. Really like the 17 second cold boot time. I've always created a custom toolbar for launching my most used programs, so the absence of the Start button hasn't been that much of a hurdle. Use an xcopy command to copy all program shortcuts to a submenu in my custom toolbar so I have easy access to all programs. Also learning a lot of new keyboard shortcuts that speed navigation when I'm in laptop mode or connected to an external 24" monitor, keyboard and mouse.
