Thanks for the heads-up. Installed it and had a play with W8 yesterday, one minute I like it, the next Im not so sure.

Hopefully a quick read of this will help.

Those who don't wish to enter any dummy information, here is a direct link to the PDF file via Dell.

Personally I think it's against the spirit in which Dell provided it to circumvent the form or incorrectly fill it out. They provided it free.

networkn: Personally I think it's against the spirit in which Dell provided it to circumvent the form or incorrectly fill it out. They provided it free.


I usually provide correct information unless it's a pr0n site and uncheck any "Please send me more information box". If I receive any subsequent email that I don't like I just click Unsubscribe and this work ok.

If they are giving it away, why deprive them from the information requested?
