    if not Pro, then it's most likely Windows 8 (Core). This is the standard edition of windows 8 and is only called (core) to distinguish from the OS itself.

    UPDATE: After checking on support.acer.com, is appears the newest os for your computer is: Windows 8.1 64-bit

    May be I can help you. Could you give me the first ten characters of the serial number (S/N)? Only the first ten.

    okay, here are the first 10 digits from the serial number / NXRZLEZ004

     

  • No information Smiley Frustrated. As you have the full serial number, I would check here. Personally I see my OS in the description.
