Should I buy windows 7 or windows 8?

So I'm probably going to go get the Asus g75 on saturday and I don't know if I should get the windows 8 version or the windows 7 version. What are the advantages/disadvantages of getting each.

Thanks,
-Rick

Get Windows 7 . Windows 8 is designed for a touch screen.

You should get an option for Windows 8 at a discount. You might as well start getting used to 8, everything forward will look like it anyway...lol.

For that kind of laptop, get Windows 7......leave Win8 to ultrabooks/hybrid tablet-laptops/touch devices.

Window 7/64 for sure with your Asus G75. In my opinion Windows 8 is for touch screen throw away toys like tablets and such.

If you are buying the system brand new, make sure you have a choice, or atleast that it comes with Windows 7 with a cheap upgrade option to Windows 8.

I recently bought an HP Envy 4, and bought the $15 Windows 8 upgrade. I don't know when or if I plan to install WIndows 8 on it, but I have it (cheap) just in case.
