First Time Poster - Not sure if I got the right category... so be patient
I have a fairly old PC Laptop that I'm using. I have Windows 7 Home Premium on a Samsung Laptop with an Intel i3 Processor inside. What I'm curious about, is whether or not installing a fresh copy of Windows 7 Home Premium (Factory Reset Essentially) would yield me better performance, or if Windows 8.1 is a better option. I have copies of both handy, so purchasing them isn't a factor. Strictly performance speaking, which OS is better?
