Well, the seller of the Dell responded and stated they would not recommend a downgrade, but offered a full refund if I would like to return it, which I will do tomorrow as I really prefer a Win 7. I will also call MS and find out if I can use the Win 7 again, on a different laptop, or not and will post what I find out. Thanks for all of the help.

There are at least two types of laptop.
The cheap/home versions don't last. They're crap. I'll never buy one again.
The business laptops are much better. They last longer. They also cost much more.
Given the choice between low-priced crap and expensive quality, I chose low-priced quality ... a desktop.
I doubt I'll ever buy another laptop.

I contacted MS, explained the situation, where I bought my Win 7 software and how much I paid. The MS Rep asked for the key which I provided, put me on hold to research it, said I could use it again on another l aptop or desktop.

Very good
Only snag about windows 8 machines is the lack of ram and 64 bit needs 4gb minimum so keep that in mind before you buy another one,

The other win-7 laptop was 32 bit so might not be my first choice anymore but I believe it did have 3gb but a smaller ssd I'll have to look at it again and see if another one can be found.

On that subject, and because I need to use a pc for work, I decided to purchase a refurbished Toshiba Tecra A9 Notebook Win 7 15.4" HD Laptop Core 2 Duo 3GB 500GB WiFi DVDRW that according to the ad, was refurbished to "excellent" working condition, has a 30-day return policy and a one year warranty with Win 7 PROFESSIONAL instead of Home Premium. Well, I received it yesterday, tried it out, and it boots to the Windows Boot Manager instead of desktop EVERY time, the aero peek didn't work, but I found instructions online to fix that, and did, the touch pad will not zoom pages when I move my fingers to the corners or sides. Also, some links, not all, will not open unless I refresh the page. I have no idea what's causing that.

Because I have never used a business laptop, I was annoyed that there is no camera or keypad which I am used to. I've contacted the seller who offered a refund, but I want to let him know of any other problems since it supposedly was restored to "excellent" working condition. Is this laptop a piece of crap?
