Use Windows 8 with a UI mod. No reason to use an OS that's going to be end of life in a few years. I agree with donavannj that a desktop's probably a smarter choice, though. Even smarter: never go within five miles of Worst Buy. Either assemble your own desktop or use one of CyberPower's configurators.

If you do want Linux, try System76. They have reasonable prices for decent hardware and are pretty much guaranteed to work with any distro, not just Ubuntu (which they come bundled with). And no Windows tax.
