I am looking to upgrade my current Acer laptop with a new one. However, I notice they come with Windows 8 installed and this keeps getting dreadful reviews.
Is it possible to either order one with Windows 7, or downgrade from 8 to 7 after purchase?

It's probably easier and CHEAPER to just buy the computer with Windows 7 already installed than trying to downgrade (some manufacturer do offer a downgrade path). Many models with Windows 7 are identical to current models with the exception of having Windows 7 instead of Win 8....and actually probably are a little cheaper to buy.

OK, so I have '8' did not like it, but have downloaded 2 programmes "Skip Metro Suite" and 'Classic Shell" both are good free progs, so get the benefits of 8, and the look of '7' and it makes life a lot, lot easier.
