What notebook should I buy?

I need a notebook for college and I was going to buy this: http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/laptops-netbooks/laptops/laptops/compaq-cq58-331sa-15-6-laptop-20205383-pdt.html

But I read the reviews and it Says that windows 8 is really slow and hard to understand so which notebook do you suggest?

    Windows 8.1 will be out soon and is supposed to be a significant improvement and fix many of the complaints regarding Windows 8. Windows 8 is not any slower than its predecessors. To the contrary, it is reputed to be faster.

    Take a look at these rankings:

    Lenovo, Asus, HP, and Samsung are the top 4 laptop brands. I wouldn’t consider any other brands.

    Dell makes Alienware and they are not worth the money charged.
    Acer makes Gateway. You’d have to pay me to use one of their machines.
    Sony hardware has generally been good, but they are notorious for putting huge amounts of crapware/bloatware on machines and gathering information on their consumers without their knowledge or permission.
    Toshiba has bottomed the rankings. Personally, I have used them and never had a problem, but that does not appear to be the case any more.
