    Windows 8 actually has a lot of features that make it better than 7. Especially in the performance as another poster noted.

    Having a touch screen is nice but it's not at all necessary to run Windows 8. The OS works just as well with a keyboard and mouse.

    It's possible to downgrade but you'll lose any tech support if you downgrade a new computer so bear that it mind. I don't think you'll lose the manufacturer's warranty by installing a new OS but you might want to ask the manufacturer before downgrading.

    Also it'll cost you. You'll have to buy full retail copy of Windows 7 and to a clean install of 7. That means that any programs that came with your PC will have to be reinstalled.

    I love Windows 8 on my laptop, even without a touch screen. It makes your start-up screen a lot faster, and generally, everything runs a bit faster. I like the easier access to the news, different programs, email, etc. It also looks nice. :)

    I don't know if you can downgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 7 - you probably will have to pay and reinstall Windows 7.

    Windows 8 was build with a touch screen in mind. Microsoft trying to make more money. Keep windows 7 because many tech people say that windows 8 will be bad like vista was, so soon they will make a windows 9. You can also look at other operating systems like Apple mac or Linux like Ubuntu. There is more than just windows and we have options.

    To answer your question - Yes you don't need a touch screen...but I wouldn't go with W8 in the first place.

    To answer your second question - Yes you can
