The hardware looks nice.

Windows 8 ?????
That OS is new.
I would expect it and the apps that run with it to have growing pains......your call.

I'd consider backing up to w7......most of the bugs have been worked out.
Product support>>>>>2020.

Canada bucks?.......no idea.

Looks good to me

It looks pretty good if you make a couple of changes to the default config. 1) I'd add another 3 GB of RAM and 2) I'd go with Windows 7 64 bit. Keep away from new versions of Windows until there's a SP1 maintenance, especially for Windows 8.

Good luck.
