    Not really, if i have iphone and ipad, than laptop should use similar OS. And as I mentioned in my first post for me very important how well the OS looks. Linux probably nicer than Win 10, because any OS is nicer. But MacOS maybe even prettier than Windows 7.

    Hey guys,

    I'm back. Sold my old Acer Vn7-793G and bought ASUS N580VD. Installed Windows 7 and almost everything works great. I'm so happy I can use it once again.

    I'm missing ELAN Touchpad driver. I've already tried 5-6 drivers but they won't install or won't detect my touchpad.

    Is it a laptop or desktop? If its a laptop the UEFI UI is amazing I am still on old BIOS UI. Disable secure boot for W7 install.
    If you aren't using newer Slipstreamed Win 7 use Compatible or iGPU mode in Graphics config on W7 if you want to install with secure boot. If you disabled Secure boot then no need to change Graphics config!
    P.S Hide your serial number.

    No, I'm using Windows 10 right now. I had to switch back to W10 because I had some strange issues with Windows 7 when gaming - sudden drops to 20 fps for a longer period of time.
