DOS is Disk Operating System and Windows 8 is the latest GUI based operating system. Refer Saurabh Gohil's answer on this for more. You would have noticed that same laptop model is available with DOS and with Windows, however the former being cheaper than the later as the OEM or Original Equiment Manufacturer charges you the license fee for Windows.

A dos laptop is a type of basic operating system that has only a command prompt.( it has much more than that but not very useful for the normal people). Ppl usually buy a does laptop because it is cheaper when compared to a windows laptop with a cost difference of around 3 to 5k usually. But the problem is that after buying it u will have to put an operating system to use it. And if u are going for a genuine one then it will be costly like one is could cost around 11k. Most of the ppl who buy dos laptops give it to a normal shop that later on puts either a shopkeepers copy or a fake version of the os for 2 or 3k Honestly it better u buy the windows 8 laptop.. It may be costlier but u will have a genuine is and the features that come with it and worth it Message if u need any more clarifications. Thanks

What is the difference between a DOS laptop and Windows 8 laptop? There is no difference at all. Both laptops are the same its just that their operating system is different. DOS is Disk Operating System and Windows 8 is the latest GUI based operating system. Refer Saurabh Gohil's answer on this for more. You would have noticed that same laptop model is available with DOS and with Windows, however the former being cheaper than the later as the OEM or Original Equiment Manufacturer charges you the license fee for Windows. The reason why this exists is: Imagine you are a developer who deals with Linux or say a server side maintenance guy and you want a portable machine which is a laptop on which you would want to install your desired work OS and work, now so when you go to purchase a new laptop, why would you buy a laptop that has Windows when you will be using some other operating system? Right? So this is the reason why this option is given. However you may not find this in terms of desktop that common as you can always build one but you cannot build a laptop by yourself. This was just one example. There are various such instances where cost cutting may be required and hence such versions exist. I hope my shared knowledge helps you :)
