What Windows 8 product? There is obviously a wide variety of machines from any number of companies to choose from. They very greatly in terms of quality. Do you have one in mind? I find Apple's Laptops are some of the best out there, but there certainly are contenders running Windows worth checking out.
EDIT: FWIW, I had a couple small problems with my Macbook over the years but Apple's tech people have been good to me. Once exchanged a battery, well out of warranty, for free. It's experiences like that which keep me loyal.
