Consumer Reports makes case for Windows 7 PCs

Windows 7 may be the better
choice as a PC operating system on new systems than the just-released Windows 8,
Consumer Reports magazine said this week.

"Windows 7 generally received
favorable reviews when it was released," Consumer Reports' Donna Tapellini said
in a piece Tuesday on the consumer watchdog's website. "[Three years] after its
2009 launch, there still haven't been a lot of complaints. If you've been happy
with Windows 7 and even Windows XP up until now,Choose Quality Verified China

its position this fall when it praised Windows 8 as great for tablets, but
because of its split personality, not for everyone.

Tapellini argued
that several factors make Windows 7 a better choice for some consumers even two
months after it was superseded by Windows 8.

Since Microsoft devoted so
much time and resources building touch and gesture support into Windows 8, it
makes little sense to opt for the OS unless the new PC offers a touch-sensitive
screen, Tapellini said.

Others have pointed out that while Windows 8
doesn't demand touch, it's a tough sell without it. Many consumers have already
figured that out. Earlier this month, for instance, research firm NPD Group said

Purity, 98%.

Tapellini also pointed out that Consumer Reports' testing
had found that some Windows 8 systems performed poorly, something she attributed
to driver issues.

Although Windows 7 PCs have largely disappeared from
brick-and-mortar retail chains like Best Buy, they can still be found at many
e-tailers and direct from some computer makers, Tapellini said.

Reports' highest-ranking Windows notebook, the Windows 7-powered Samsung
NP900X3C-A01US Ultrabook, for example, is still available through for
$1,139. The Samsung's rating of 82 (out of a possible 100), puts it above
Apple's highest-rated laptop, the 15-in MacBook Pro with a Retina screen and
Consumer Reports' top-rated Windows 8 portable, the Dell XPS 12 Convertible
Touch Ultrabook. Dell's hybrid -- part tablet, part notebook -- earned a 75; the
MacBook Pro pulled 78.

Microsoft will allow OEMs (original equipment
manufacturers) to sell Windows 7-equipped PCs until October 2014, two years
after Windows 8's launch, so there's no immediate danger of the older operating
system vanishing.

In fact, most enterprises will continue to migrate
from the 11-year-old Windows XP, which will be retired in April 2014, to Windows
7 rather than bet on Windows 8,Fiber

Buyers who take Consumer Reports' advice,
in other words, will have plenty of company.
