3 out of 5 eggs no media center??? 03/18/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit


- fast boot
- simple install
- I'm using classic shell so I have no issue with the tiles


- I'm severely disappointed that Windows 8.1 regular edition does not include the media center. Windows 7 Home edition included media center. Now, if you want to use media center, you have to upgrade to Pro. I specifically bought this for a HTPC only find it didn't have media center. Thanks a lot MS,

Other Thoughts:

If you want to use this for a HTPC, you need to buy the pro version.

Classic shell work really well. Takes it back to a windows 7 like desktop.
