    Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center


    Metro 70% - Browsing, News, Weather, Finance, Sports, Remote Desktop, Calculator, Ton of new Metro Apps, New Metro style games, launching almost all Desktop apps (instead of installing a Start Menu replacement).

    Desktop 30% - Running Desktop apps (of course), including software development. video editing, Office, Gaming.
