Recently I started using Windows 8 and Outlook 2013 with my new HP EliteBook Folio 9470m laptop.
I am experiencing a learning curve in adapting to Windows 8 primarily due to the tiles and the lack of the customary Windows start button. The transition to Outlook 2013 has been slightly easier, although there are still a couple of times a day when I need to think through a task before completing the necessary steps. As with any new software or hardware upgrade, the memory of the previous laptop and Windows 7/Outlook 2007 will fade away quickly. On a side note, the HP Folio 9470m is sleek, fast, and lightweight. I highly recommend this unit for executives on the go. Click here for more details on the HP Folio 9470m: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/products/laptops/product-detail.html?oid=5271146.
