Windows 7 or Windows 8????

timer Asked: Jan 15th, 2013

Question Description

I'm thinking of getting a new laptop. My current laptop, Dell Inspiron 1525 (old I know) is running Windows 7. I would like the latest technology, but I have heard some negative feedback. I most use my laptop or internet, social networking, Word and Excel and Powerpoint, Graphic editing using GIMP 2, and online media streaming content. Should I upgrade to a Windows 8 laptop? Or, should I stay with Windows 7?

Please give your personal opinions, personal experience with Windows 8, and supported references to your personal opinion.

PS - and lastly, what laptop OEM do you prefer, and why?
