I know it's tempting but I see no reason to upgrade atm. Wait a bit.

Question: Do you have a touch screen computer?

If yes: go ahead and get Windows 8
If no: it really isn't worth it

I work at best buy and have windows 8 since it came out, LOL works perfectly fine even when im running like 3 or 4 back round programs. It may seem intimidating but its actually super simple and you would be surprised how easy it is to learn new tricks and such.

Since the graphics overhall of league i had experienced numerous glitches in league. Mostly with what lag spikes, and FPS variences. (would bounce between 30 and 89 fps at all times...) Tried everything even a complete fresh install. however with my laptop once i upgraded to windows 8 it all went away.. Haven't had any lag issues, nor have i had issues with FPS.. I sit at around 5x fps with the occasional spike to 80+fps but never any lower fps rates.. Not sure why but my 2 cents.
