Question by Colby: Should I switch to windows 8?
I currently have a dell Inspiron 15 n010 with a i3 duo core 8gb of ram and i3 HD graphics and my os is windows 7 home edition my
warranty has expired so I plan on wiping the system as it has become very slow and yes i have an anti virus (Bitdefender 2013) as well as registry cleaner (slmcleaner). i plan on upgrading the HDD to a SSD. But I can’t decide should i get windows 8 or stay with 7? I mostly use it for music and small games like league of legends an guild wars.
Any advice? I’ve been a little hesitant to switch cuz I’ve herd bad things but I’m computer savvy enough I could probably figure it out.

Look into it. Basically personal preference. As an online gamer though, I personally wouldn’t get it. It has its pros and cons, and I know people who say its horrible, and people who absolutely love it. But based off your specs, your computer shouldn’t have a hard time running Windows 8 at all.
I think of it as this. Windows 8 seems really good if you have a touch-screen device/monitor, otherwise I see Windows 7 as your best bet. If I had a touch-screen monitor or tablet, I would get Windows 8, but for my at home computer, I’ll stick with Windows 7.
