If that's all you're doing there's really no overriding reasons to upgrade. Windows 8 for all intents and purposes simply grafts a not so great interface onto Windows 7.

No good reason and a lot of risks like wifi not working...
All the best Brett

Might be good IF your laptop has a touch-screen.
Windows 8 takes some time to get used too, but it's okay.
Read all the Tips & Tricks out there. No "Start" button is weird, you use the "Windows key" on the keyboard.
