Do you have you a question about the Asus X551CA 15.6" Notebook Core i3 (3217U) 1.8GHz 4GB 500GB Windows 8?

Q: Hi - I am looking for a budget laptop for straightforward web browsing, word processing etc. Do you provide Windows 7 at all? Windows 8 doesn't appeal. I use Windows 7 at work, and it is just fine. Thanks.
