Best Windows 7 Laptops Still Available For Sale

Windows 8/8.1 has had a difficult time capturing the hearts and minds of PC users as a result of its steep learning curve and major UI overhaul. Unfortunately, PC users can no longer purchase new Windows 7 installs or downloads, but that doesn’t mean Windows 7 is gone for good. Shoppers in search of Windows 7 can still buy an up-to-date notebook that comes preloaded with the OS, but only if they know where to look. These are the best Windows 7 laptops you can buy today.

    I’m trying to decide what most closely compares to the constant irritation I have experienced over the past year since getting a new laptop with Windows 8. Maybe a kennel of barking dogs next door? No, actually I can’t think of anything that has frustrated and angered me as much as the hated Windows 8. It is like falling down a circuitous-route hole with Alice in Wonderland.

    The worst release ever….Microsoft take Windows 8 and cram it up your arses.

    Windows 8 is the most horrible os ever. Been using windows since 3.1 and never have I experienced such problems. After spending so much for my laptop, now its useless and have to buy another with windows 7 as my custom model will not accept w7. Maybe this was a ploy so people would have to purchase two computers.

    I want desperately to purchase new laptop as I HATE the M-Surface I bought. Looking to find M-7 and just read your comment _
    ” PC users can no longer purchase new Windows 7 installs or downloads, but that doesn’t mean Windows 7 is gone for good.”
    So if I can’t get updates or downloads, what does that mean?

    What do you think of the Mac Book Pro?

    How do I find IPad deals?

    Windows 8 is horrible. Why somebody sell something like that?

    Um, I bought a Win7 disc and built a new PC myself–in APRIL. Article date is February. So it is and was still for sale, and I can still get system disks anywhere–so it IS still available

    I need to find a laptop 7 any make …I have a special needs child who does not read or write but loves to play on the computer. She is learning what keys to press to get her favorite song FROZEN. I do not do computers very much or very well, so I cannot help her with something like windows 8. Where can i get a cheap laptop regular size for her. It keeps her very happy and she has less moments of crying when she is on the computer.Does anyone know where I can get one for little money. thank you

Who in heck created this monstrosity, this creation that, frustrates, waaaay to complicated,makes me angry, i am ready to pull my hair out, stupid creation WINDOWS 8, horrible experience, can never get any work finished on my home computer….ready to throw it off my balcony……PLEASE BRING BACK WINDOWS 7, so much more simple basic, i was soooo into using it, it was soooo much easier… us worldwide….from a intensely frustrated Windows 8 attempting trying to figure it out American Citizen…..

    Windows 8 Utterly destroyed my gift of a laptop for my mothers 80th Birthday present,my brother uses it only.

    Windows 7 Professional is the ONLY OS that is usable for a NEVER before computer user, apple I would MUCH rather have spent the money instead of the awful Dell Inspiron,even an ipad with internet wi fi was more but wow it SURE would have been worth it. I make music with SONAR the hobby DAW,that could be great if it had an apple version now I’m so ensconced in their subscription based thing. X3 Producer and Windows 7 Professional. I’m NOT looking forward to W 10 and subscription based cakewalk future AT all.
