Win7 is still a better option in my opinion
Me to nicole we will see where 8 goes but for me and for now I am just sitting tight.
This is rather odd for me really as I am usually beta on new versions of Windows and have been on 8 as well but I do not see getting a gold disk for being an alpha and beta tester this time as I have been since Windows 95 up until now.
That is not the reason though I just do not see it (8) as being efficient for my systems or at least any more so than 7 is now.
Would be awesome if only I had bought my laptop more recently.
I really think you need to give it a go, I did install the preview on an 4 yr old computer and it ran rather well, better then windows 7. I did like the feel of how things worked no one really likes change, god i hate change but I will give windows 8 a go for sure it looks rather interesting and I can see what they are trying to do.
Your laptop doesn't need windows 8. Its pretty different from the windows 7 platform and you will probably want to keep the windows 7 laptop and get a different computer with 8 so that you have both.
