what is the difference in the 'N' version?

You would need to purchase to separate upgrades. Windows N doesn't contain media player, due to an EU court ruling on fair competition in business and trading.

I have a Windows7 - 64 bit laptop only. Is this upgrade viable or does this upgrade have to be loaded on a pc?
Similarly, on a laptop, would aspects such as touch screen be covered by use of the mouse?

Windows 8 would function fully on a laptop, I currently have it running on two desktops, one touch screen all in one and an i3 hp laptop, all have full functions using either mouse or touch.

Quick question?

I see people say that this upgraded version of Windows 8 can be installed from a fresh install aswell, but can anyone give me a confirmation if it can actually be done that way?

I have my Windows 7 Pro ready to reinstall if I have to, but doing a fresh install would make things a little easier.

Mr. M. Wall, a full install is possible with this disc check with your support manual for your computer on how to boot from the bios, plenty of tutorials are available on line.

Hi Taron,

So it isn't an upgrade version at all then? No previous qualifying version required?

A Fresh install will require an old windows product key from xp or above, any key from any version of xp, vista or 7 will allow you to upgrade you can also upgrade from the consumer preview of windows 8 which is a free download from the microsoft website untill Jabuary the 1st
