    The N edition is for the European market. It comes without Windows Media Player. It is the result of a European lawsuit against Microsoft for bundling non-essential apps into the OS.

    Welcome to the Win 8 Forum, both of you.

    Thanks for that info. I did not know about the N designation for Europe. Does this edition also not have IE and Win Defender, or are those included?

    The N edition does not include Windows Media Player. This was removed to stop a lawsuit in Europe.
