I agree with Brian, Windows 7 is a thing of
the past and you really should make the jump to Windows 10
whenever it is that you get a new computer. Besides the fact
that Windows 7 will have no more support in less than a year,
Windows 10 at least by now is so superior to Windows 7 in
almost any way, crashes which I had on a very regular bases
with Windows 7 are probably reduced by 95% in Windows 10, it’s
Stabil and fast and as Brian also said, all screenreader
support and development is for Windows 10. You may like things
others don’t have, but really, a floppy drive, I mean why on
earth would you want a floppy drive? If you have old floppies
put what’s on them on a USB stick or an external drive or a
DVD, but I’m really curious what the point of one is?
Also, you would be much better off with a
500 Gb or so SSD as your main system drive, then add a good
quality hard drive with a larger capacity if you need lots of
storage, the system performance will be double or better
overall and if you want a fast system you really do need an
SSD or your hard drive becomes the proverbial bottle neck in
your nice new machine.
is what I use, so even if support ends, I'll still be happy
with what I have.

The end of support for Windows 7 is also
now only 8 months away, so it makes no sense, if one is going
to continue into the future under the Windows ecosystem, to
use Windows 7.
The folks that develop JAWS and other screen readers aren't
going to "instantly" drop support for Windows 7, but it will
eventually be dropped, and probably much faster than support
for XP and Vista were dropped during the Windows 7/8/early-10
era given the changes in the underlying architecture of
Brian - Windows 10 Pro, 64-Bit, Version 1809, Build 17763
