comment Windows 8 pale colors
"Better" in terms of colors is highly subjective, and newer laptops don't necessarily have monitors with "better" color calibration. One person might prefer a lot of saturation, while someone else might like less saturation. This is why most monitors and TVs allow you to change such settings.

comment Windows 8 pale colors
You say that they are different from your old laptop, so I'm assuming this is a completely different computer. Different monitors typically display colors slightly differently, so it is likely a "problem" with your monitor's color calibration, not Windows 8. There's a guide on doing so here, though many other options are available.

comment Windows 8 live account while disconnected
Indeed, I don't envision being disconnected from the internet for any length of time to be an issue for most users. I'm thinking my organization might simply have a different policy in place for caching AD credentials. Thanks for the correction!

comment Windows 8 live account while disconnected
I'm also not sure how long the cache will last. I know that Active Directory will cache a password, but eventually must be reconnected to the domain. Though Live IDs are also obviously cached, I wouldn't rely on the cache lasting forever.

comment Use Windows Live ID, but login with a different password
Presumably I would be similarly given the option of changing my password locally. If I set a PIN on this machine with my Live ID, what happens if I log in on another machine? I know I'm thinking of this more as linking my Live ID to a local account whereas the reality is that I am logging in as my Live ID, but I'm hoping there is a way to make it more link-like.

comment Use Windows Live ID, but login with a different password
My Live ID password is easy to type on an Xbox or a phone, but not so easy to type on a keyboard. I could come up with a new one, but then I'd also have to change it on my other devices. If there's no other solution, that's definitely what I'll do.

Start by finding your graphics card manufacturer's website, and finding the latest drivers for your card there.
