I am thinking of purchasing a new Novatech Elite N1724 laptop and need to select an operating system for it. Which operating system would you recommend - Windows 7 Home Premium or Windows 8.1. Thanks for your opinions.

I too bought my latest laptop from Novatech, excellent choice.

I have Win7 installed, not too different from XP so easy to get to grips with. I have tried Win8 - I hate it!!

I'm with Nontek. W8 is designed for touch screen and will be a sharp learning curve.

If you have the opportunity have a play with each of them and see what suits you. Personally I prefer 7.
