    Luckily for you, Microsoft have stopped shipping W7 to manufacturers to preload on machines. With that, prices should start to fall to some degree. W10 will be here soon. Vista is also, sadly, much better than W7.

    With Windows 8.1 it will now boot direct into the desktop so there's no need to even see the metro tiles any longer if you don't want to. Also if you install a Start menu replacement software program (there are loads of free ones) then you will get the start button back as well so it will not only feel like Win 7 but you will get all the benefits of Win 8 such as it will run better and faster.

    So no need to go back to Win 7 at all :-)

    That's because that's the future I'm afraid, you'll have to embrace it at some point! ;-)

    Both Win 8 and Win 8.1 have metro tiles AND desktops. Just that when MS (in their wisdom) first brought out 8 they booted it straight into the tiles (althought this could be changed). Now with 8.1 they have changed it around and it now does the opposite and it boots straight into the desktop instead.... so just exactly the same as Win 7!

    No probs, I hope it gives you a bit more love for Win 8 :-) lol

    I have windows 8.1 with touchscreen which I would really recommend. I use the desktop which makes it look like I am still using windows 7. I really like the touchscreen option which works great with some extra options available with windows 8.

    Once you get used to 8.1 you will not want to go back to Windows 7. Generally faster and actually using Windows key then typing your search works better than the traditional start menu once you get the hang of it.

    All I want is something I can use to browse the Internet. Internet shop, jib search ect as I find you get more on a laptop then using silly apps or mobile Internet.

    You could always try getting a laptop without an operating system (http://www.novatech.co.uk)
    and buying ebay.co.uk/itm…061 for £33
