    If I want to wipe Windows 8 Which Version of Windows 7

    I've looked online for Windows 7 software to put on my new laptop after I wipe 8 off it and there are so many different versions I'm confused.

    The laptop is a Samsung Chronos series 7 with an i7 processor.

    There is windows 7 Home premium 64 bit that has OEM designations which seem to be much cheaper than the non-OEM versions.

    This won't be a network computer, just a personal laptop from which I'll be blogging.

    Can someone let me know if the OEM version would work for me.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Since it's a laptop go a head and get an OEM. the 7 home premium x64 is perfect for you. But before make sure Samsung as the Windows 7 drivers on their website

    If you install Classic Shell you will be reverting Window8 to Windows 7 you will not see the metro ui hardly at all. Much cheaper than paying Microsoft more money for an operating system. If you have win8 pro you can down grade to Windows 7 for no cost.

    I would think SevenForums might be a better route to consider to look for Windows 7 help....
