    Just a question about pricing


    How much US dollars is Windows 10 64-bit Pro and Windows 10 64-bit Home?

    At Computer Parts, Laptops, Electronics, and More - Newegg.com, the OEM versions are $99.99 and $139.99. The licenses are intended for computers to be sold, but as far as I know, there is no enforcement of that.

    Microsoft offers zero support for these licenses. They are also not allowed to be transferred to new PCs, unlike the retail versions.

    Ok, so if I wanted to build a new system I can't use the Windows 10 Pro that I updated on this Laptop for free from Windows 7? I was just thinking about buying Windows 10 Home (because it's cheaper) and put it on this laptop and put this Windows 10 Pro from my old laptop on my new system.

    Unless the Windows 7 license on the laptop is a retail one, you couldn't transfer it to a new system. Sorry.

    It's not a bummer - it is a good deal. You get the OS for half price.
