AFAIK, the terms of the upgrade technically does not allow double booting. I bought two Windows 7 Gateways to use as DVRs and see no reason to upgrade to Windows 8 at this point. To hedge my bets, I paid the $15 upgrade for each of the PCs and downloaded the Windows 8 upgrade for potential future use. Also obtained two free licenses for the Win 8 WMC add-on.

You can not dual boot with an upgrade. It will install as an upgrade, not as a standalone OS.
You can buy a full copy of 8 and then dual boot if you want to.

It's all a matter of preference, but I honestly haven't found anyone who prefers Win8 on a non-touchscreen laptop. It really is a pain in the butt to have everything changed as far as how you start, stop and interact with programs. If there were a major benefit to be gained it might be worth the hassle, but no one can explain what this is. I installed it on a couple machines and regret doing so. In fact, a major project for next weekend will be "downgrading" my laptop to 7.
