So I want to upgrade my ASUS N55SL Windows 7 laptop to Windows 8 but I might want to return to Windows 7 later if I don't like it. Will I be able to return to factory settings again later if I change my mind about Windows 8?
P.S. I don't have the recovery disk. I didn't get one as I purchased the laptop as factory excess.

yes. Just be mindful that the regular restore partition on the HDD may be gone so you may need to get a disk from Asus to restore it back.

Most systems let you burn a copy of the recovery image to a set of DVDs. If the recovery partition doesn't work this is a backup.
