The biggest difference between Windows 7 and Windows 8 is the lack of a Start Button in Windows 8. For a tablet or a phone, Windows 8 looks pretty good.

On a desktop or a regular laptop, Windows 7 remains the better choice for heavy duty work.

@AXISHK - Thank you. I was happy to help and good luck with your selection going forward.

I need to get a new Thinkpad in 2013 and I will get it with Windows 8 Pro 64-bit. I will either make it work on my terms, or I will upgrade to Windows 7 (one or the other).
