How best to get Windows 7 on a new laptop?

I’m done with Windows 8, and I’m not interested in 8.1 – this disaster can’t be fixed. What I need is Windows 7, or something that looks just like it. How best to achieve this?
A. Buy a machine with W7 installed. My hesitation is that all the latest models come with W8, so maybe I’d be missing out on some big hardware thing.
B. Buy a machine with W8 and install W7 on it. My hesitation is driver issues. I don’t want any issues.
C. Buy a machine with W8 and install Classic Shell over it.
For the record: I need Windows Explorer, wireless & Bluetooth, and routine Office & Internet functions. I don’t need gaming or major video. Or touchscreen. Or Charms.
Any hive thoughts?
