    Windows 8? Worth the upgrade for G53JW notebook?

    Is it worth upgrading to Windows 8 Pro from a gaming standpoint. I currently have a G53JW notebook which came with Windows 7.

    I was just wondering if it would help at all because as a college student, we get OS upgrades for really cheeeap

    why not, win8 is faster than 7 and uses less resources, as well as being more efficient and functional. see if you can swindle media center in their too.

    Yeah. I'm glad I waited until Windows 8.1. It actually seems good once you get past the learning curve.

    WIndows 8 seemed like it was only for tabs or touchscreens. The only thing I miss is the Start button Lol

    I really like win8.1 and would not go back to Win7 for a day to day rig. I still use Win7 for some benchmarks so get to play with it quite often and that reminds me each time how much more I like the 8.1 OS.
