Hi,

Windows 8 boots and shuts down faster. Generally most programs run a little faster on Windows 8 how
much has a lot to do with the complexity/intensity of any individual program. On some programs Windows
7 actually will be a little faster.

One of the main advantages of Windows 8 is the advanced interconnectivity of many devices.

Keep in mind that some hardware may not run Windows 8 that works on Windows 7 (rare) and that specific
drivers optimized for Windows 8 are not yet available. So any differences should actually increase slightly
in favor of Windows 8 as those optimized drivers become available.

Hope this helps.
