Windows 8 Vs Win 7 Gaming Laptop and FROSTYCOMPUTERS
Oct 27, 2012, 5:58 PM
Just curious if a Win 8 laptop is more "efficient" than a Win 7 gaming laptop.
For example if battery life/performance is better or not
I was considering something along the lines of the MSI GX60 but theres no backlit keyboard
And the GT60 is very expensive.
Also wondering if I should buy refurbished/openbox and how reliable is Frostycomputers?
the BBB rates them an F! Compared to an A for cyberpower/ibuypower and xoticpc
Ive heard stories of people getting scammed and not receiving a laptop when purchasing from frostycomputers

Most games are optimized for windows vista/7 why on earth would you want a tablet based windows os anyway? I for one and skipping windows 8, it has a horrible interface for a PC.

Never heard of them. Try Googling around to find opinions / reviews.

Windows 8 looks more like a tablet than a laptop UI to me. As a gamer am really pissed off at Microsoft for this horrible Metro and RA/m glutting apps. I would definitely give it a skip

Yeah, don't buy from frostycomputers. I order notebook, pay for it and never get it. Money not receive too. Case reported, but they were not able to do anything, I still not receive money.
