    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.

    A Great Operating System

    Windows 10 Professional is the most reliable operating system that I've owned. I started using W10 after many years of being an XP user so there was a bit of a learning curve. Now that I'm familiar with the W10 way of doing things, I can find what I want almost as quickly as I could in XP. I did have a problem installing it. The system wouldn't recognize the product key when I tried to upgrade from W10 Home to the Pro version. A call to MS tech support solved the problem. One of their support people connected to my PC and remotely fixed whatever was causing it to reject my product key.

    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.

    Geek Squad had to install this

    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.

    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.

    Nice to have a DVD

    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.

    Moving to Windows 10 is a major adjustment for me, but I am making the adjustment. It is loaded with things I don't need or want but I've learned how to change the program to what I want and need. Change comes whether wanted or not and we have very little choice in the matter.

    Best OS in years

    Every other Microsoft operating system appears to be the best one to skip. That was Windows 8, leading us to the superb Windows 10. While Microsoft's move to services over software licenses is difficult for those not interested in being tied to one vendor, Microsoft has the most available software and is hard to beat.

    Reliable and cheaper than Microsoft directly

    I wanted to purchase Windows 10 Pro from a reliable source yet didn't want to pay the more expensive price direct from Microsoft. Looked at other sources, but ultimately trusted the purchase from Best Buy over them. Received product and had no issues with the install or activation number.

    This is OEM only

    The three stars are for Windows, but also for Best Buy's not mentioning that this is an OEM version not directly supported by Microsoft. I am not impressed. Of course, Microsoft's support is usually worthless anyway, so probably less foul than otherwise would be the case.

    Built a new pc and needed an o/s. I’m not really a fan of this piece of software mainly because of the data collecting it does. Even restricting it, it sends more back to MS than I’m happy about but it’s needed because I’m not the only user in the house.

    Was expecting serial code with the product... there was none. Reused old Win7 code found on a sticker and that saved the day. Was about to return it but it's too much hassle to do so. Bestbuy description, 1 star. Win10 OS, 5 stars.

    If you have a PC and would like to have it be a lot more reliable and robust for heavy computing tasks than Windows 10 Pro is a very reliable choice. For the typical business user this and the Full Microsoft Office suite easily pays for itself.

    The only issue was reading the 1/10 of an inch print of the KEY, but other than that, very easy to install and use. Best Buy got the order to me 3 days before it was promised so even better when delivered!

    Windows 10 Pro has solved corrected many of the problems that have plagued the Win 7 and 8. The added functionality of the pro version makes setting up a small control server a lot easer than in the past.

    I upgraded my computer and it wouldn't accept my older Win10 upgrade. It was running Ming fine for few days then it got crazy and needed the upgrade, then I had to buy it and installed it. Now my desktop is running great!

    My HD crashed and my last OS was Win 7 Alt 64. Loved that OS. could not retrieve it off the old HD and could not find a replacement of the same OS, thus I was Force to purchase a newer un tested OS. It seems to do the job.
