I' m looking to buy a new laptop which has Windows 8, would I be able to use my Adobe Creative Suite 3 web premium with this?
I really need to sort this out tomorrow so any help would be greatly appreciated.
In general Win 8 is new and still has bugs to work out. For photoshop video card and drivers are crucial and they are still struggling with Win7 to get it correct. So as always a new OS most likely will require some time and work to get it to useable.

CS3 wasn't even officially certified for Win 7, so you should be prepared that it may not at all work with an even newer Windows version... I would predict that e.g. printing will absolutely not work, bvecause that part has completely changed in Win 8. Beyond that I doubt you will find definitive answers. There's simply too many variables. For some it works, for others it won't. Nothing's lost by trying, though.
