Solved Regarding Windows 8 pre-order versions?


#1
This is going to sound like a dumb question, but are the current versions of Windows 8 only upgrades from an older version? Microsoft haven't made this very clear, since I don't understand the difference between Pro and Pro N?

If you guys could tell me the difference that would be great.

Windows 8 Pro



Kind Regards,
Saint Andrew
