Where can I buy a laptop with Windows 7?

It seems like Microsoft is trying to phase out Windows 7 already, and it's becoming increasingly harder to find a laptop that comes preinstalled with Windows 7. I have tried Tesco, PC World and local computer shops and they all seem to be Windows 8. Can anyone recommend a shop that has Windows 7 laptops?

Well it's almost impossible to get a Windows 7 based laptop now after the Windows 8 release.You could only get one if there's an old stock left in the shops.
Though if you really want a Windows 7 based laptop,then you can get a DOS based Laptop and buy a Windows 7 licensed copy to install it on your laptop.

Then you've got to find though more money to buy a copy of Windows 7. Microsoft should realise that Windows 8 isn't for everyone, and for the next few years they should continue to release Windows 7 laptops like they do with Windows 8 ones. A lot of my friends are in the same situation, as Windows 8 isn't ideal for gaming at all.

Try to find over the internet shops. Search over the ebay or Amazon. May be they have some old stocks having Win 7 Pre-installed PC.

Re: Where can I buy a laptop with Windows 7?

Well, a quick search of Newegg, looking for laptops with Windows 7, shows a whole bunch, especially in the referbs - really good deals there. Most laptops, with Windows 8 preinstalled, but not all, will be touchscreen machines. If you DO get one, be sure to get touch. Windows 8 (metro) is useless without it.

Re: Where can I buy a laptop with Windows 7?

The only solution is to get a second hand laptop. All the new models come with preinstalled 8. Still, if you really want 7, you can get a new one and replace 8 with 7.

It is very impossible to get a laptop windows 7 because after windows 8 release every laptop is come with windows 8. you have to find on some computer shop in your area who has stocked laptop with windows 7.

Or you can one without an OS. Then get a Windows 7 License and install it. Still, I don't know if it's that cheap...

People:
Many retailers and OEMs are offering Windows 7 laptops, including Dell, HP, Newegg, and Amazon. Just search for "Windows 7 Laptop". Lotsa hits.
