Thread Name: why did I think windows 8 would work
Subject: RE: why did I think windows 8 would work
The laptop on which I type this was bought cheap in a supermarket as a stopgap 4 years ago and has Vista Home Basic on it. It has never given me a moment's problem.

However it isn't powerful enough to run some modern software I'm using so I'm upgrading. My wife has a Windows 8 laptop and I detest it. Happily I discovered that you can still buy Laptops with Windows 7, either by buying one from a business laptop rather than via the domestic market, or by going through the manufacturer's online outlets and looking for bargains.

I seriously considered a Macbook but the price was crazy.
