It's running Windows 8.1. Aside from helping me date it, the operating system doesn't matter to me. I'm still quite happy with the Vista I'm using on this computer. I don't make great demands of my equipment. It doesn't have Office, either. I saw the icon, but it was just a free trial version. It's obviously a Walmart-sold computer. I'm going to load my astronomy stuff on it and if it controls the telescope with no issues, I think I'll go ahead and offer her $150 for it and strip it down to bare bones. I've been using an iPod Touch for that purpose and even with my progressive eyeglass lenses and large, bumbling fingers, that iPod screen just seems to be getting smaller and smaller. It would be nice to just push buttons or use the mouse pad instead of sliding, pinching, squeezing, etc.
