Members of the IT industry are likely to feel a slight discomfort when looking at the many red numbers in the last consumer electronics market index (CEMIX): paragraphs 2013 buckled on a broad front. Everything is there with a fat minus about printer, desktop PC, notebooks. Only the sales of tablets go through the roof. Now, the high-tech slices for media consumption are sure ideal.

Windows version directly from Microsoft servers (here: Windows 7) download and play via DVD, USB stick or sometimes via SD card.
