    Regarding Windows 8 pre-order versions?


    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,

    Hi Saint Anrew,
    Welcome to the forums, Pro N doesn't have the windows media player, only upgrade versions are available for pre-order at the moment.
