    Since BestBuy won't put it in their product description, I'll sum up the difference between the versions. ------------------------------- System Builder Version ------------------------------- Once you install Windows, the license is tied to your motherboard, and cannot be installed on another PC. You also cannot upgrade your PC (if it involves changing the motherboard). ------------------- Retail Version ------------------- You can install it on any PC, as long as it's 1 PC at a time.

    Good Price, easy pick up

    Price for the item was competitive and it was easy to pick up. Had a problem finding the key as MS now puts it under a very small scratch off area on the label. It was not easy to see for me, and I was expecting the key to be inside the envelope with the DVD, not on the outside label. Luckily Best Buy support was up to the task and was able to show me the area to (carefully) scratch off, and voila the 25-character key appeared (albeit a bit hard to read with my old eyes, even with my reading glasses).

    I built my own PC and needed Win 10 Pro 64 bit to handle all the specs and RAM of my new machine. I did not want to pay Microsoft $199 so this Disc at $140 was a steal. Lastly, my new PC is replacing an 8 year old one that was originally running Windows Vista that got upgraded to Win 7. Win 10 blows away Win 7. Yes you have to configure the privacy settings but the OS is as friendly and useful as any I have ever used. I also own an iMac and this is easier to use. Highly recommended for casual or business users.

    I had to take my system into the store, so the GS could install this operating system. I tried installing it, but it would not upgrade my win 10 home to pro. the GS tech had to call Microsoft special tech support , because there was issue on the install. fortunately I had just purchased 1 1-year GS contract for $200, so I did not have to pay extra for the GS to solve the problem. I DID HAVE TO BRING MY SYSTEM TO THE STORE FOR THEM TO INSTALL THE UPGRADE..

    Windows 10 Pro upgrade from Win 7

    Bought this once I determined my mobo and chipset would support it. Installation went smoothly the second try. Do not select the recommended 'Download updates from on-line'. Just install from the disk. I had backed up my data first but encountered no problems after install, except for Office 2013 licensing. Went to Programs->Office->Repair and ran it. Problem solved. A week later, I upgraded to Office 2016. No problems.

    Great Operating System

    The operating system is easy to install and operate. Microsoft took the best of Win7 and Win8. Easy for users to adapt to as you can select from Start Menu All Programs (and most used) or choose the tile to open applications (Modern Applications). Other Applications are great as well, Cortana, virtual desktops, and WiFi Sense. Btw, Up for 3 months and no crash. Only item that is a bit frustrating is the management tools are switched around a bit.

    I'm not a fan of downloaded software. Very inconvenient. This has a DVD. I wipe my machine reghlarly to keep performance up. Apps tend to accumulate and sap performance. Win10/works well for me, as good as 7 and far better than 8. Waiting to see how it adapts. New features come without the need for a new opporating system.

    The only problem that I had was on reading the serial number, it was partially cover with a sticker and was hesitant to remove the sticker since I could have destroy the serial number, so took the W 10 Pro CD envelope to a nearby Best Buy store and at first the Geek Squad was also hesitant. The sticker had to be removed like a Lotto ticket with a coin, then you could see the entire serial number.
