recommendations
Recommendations
  • My recommendation is if you are happy with Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 then stay with that operating system. If you are buying a new computer, laptop or tablet with a touch-screen then consider upgrading to Windows 8.
  • If you don’t own a touch-screen computer then you may find the new system to be a little fiddly to use.
