Manufacturer's Description

Enjoy all the familiar features of Windows 8 with so much more thanks to the Microsoft Windows 8 Pro Pack. This excellent pack is the perfect upgrade for your Windows 8 PC, giving you all the greatest aspects of the Windows 8 experience.

Introducing Windows 8

Windows 8 is all about you. Put what matters most on your Start page, highlighting all your favourite programs and apps and giving you fast access.

Operation is simple yet stunning with the fast and fluid Windows 8 Start screen that works smoothly with a mouse and keyboard for quick navigation.

Store your multimedia on SkyDrive and access your files, photos, videos and more. Wherever you go, you’re connected to the cloud. Anyone you share your computer with can have their own cloud-connected access by signing in with their own Microsoft account.

Browse and discover thousands of apps in the Windows Store. Try before you buy, read ratings and reviews, and share your favourites with your friends.

The advantages of Pro Pack

Windows 8 Pro Pack is equipped with BitLocker, encrypting your hard drives faster, keeping your data safe without interrupting your productivity. BitLocker can also support hard drives which are already encrypted, giving you peace of mind.

Surfing is not a problem either thanks to the SmartScreen safety features, protecting you from malicious sites and software on the internet.

SmartScreen will check the reputation of apps and websites, ensuring they are safe to use no matter what browser you are on. This will stop viruses including malware from affecting your PC or network.

Exciting entertainment

Turn your computer into a home entertainment system with the Windows 8 Pack thanks to Windows Media Center, enabling you to record HD TV (if you have additional tuner hardware), DVDs and CDs.

The fun does not stop there as you can also play photo slideshows and internet TV content, giving you great flexibility and control over your home viewing.

Take the direct approach

Access your office wherever you are thanks to DirectAccess, enabling remote users to securely access all the information they need without requiring a separate virtual private network (VPN) connection.

The Microsoft Windows 8 Pro Pack has plenty of extras to offer you on top of the regular Windows 8 features so you can enhance your entertainment, maximise your security and access your work remotely.
