What Do you think of Toshiba's Windows 8 ?

Hi, my name is Sami, I was wondering if you guys could help me in my decision buying a PC .. Since I'll start next year my first university year (Computer Engineering) in Morocco and Found a good Students offer : TOSHIBA SATELLITE C55 i5 - 4Gb - 500Gb - Windows 8 - Bit defender Paid - and a year of internet Connection!! All this with an affordable 500$ .. I was very excited with the offer but had no infos about Toshibas PCs ? .. So I'd be very happy if anyone told me abt his experience or any advices ! THAANKS :)
