Thinking of buying new laptop and would like to install Wins 7 as most come with Wins 8. How complicated is it and will I have problems with drivers? New laptop will not be touch screen. Intend to upgrade when new Wins OS is launched. Don't like 8 at all, at all.

It shouldn't be a problem. I'd suggest, though, that you identify the make/model of laptop you plan to buy, then check on the manufacturer's web site to see if there are W7 drivers available for it. After that, if you're used to installing operating systems and drivers (neither of which are particularly hard anyway) you should be in good shape.
