    Hy
    I got myself a new laptop and it came with no OS. So I installed win8.1 and it seems that there is no way to activate it.
    Can You recommend me what to do?
    Can I use normally Win8 without being disrupted in my work or gaming OR should I switch back to Win 7 ?
    Thanks

    Hm, if you got yourself a new laptop, why not getting yourself a legal license for your new 8.1?
    Going back to 7 means that it must have been there before ??

    Use whatever suits you better? Or go Win8 and use MTK to activate.

    Thanks guys for all the suggestions.
    I didn't got any OS with my system,and my laptop is mainly made for windows 8. I need this laptop for college and gaming so im not sure how would i accommodate to the win8 as they have nothing similar with win7
    I would buy win 8 if it would be 50$,but it is god damn 150$ and im surely not paying that much

    so best is to wait until a decent way is found to activate your 8.1 copy or you run W8 by activating it with MTK

    Are there any limitations that will disturb me during gaming?

    No there should not be run 8 with MTK then as Paul said wait for a solution for 8.1
    If you already have a legit win8 key you activate 8.1 with that as well
