1 out of 5 eggsMisleading Product Description!

Pros: It's Windows 8.1 Pro Pack -- Upgrade from Windows 8.1 Core to Pro with Media Center. (e.g. if you bought a laptop or desktop that had 8.1 core on it, and needed features of Pro like connecting to a domain, bitlocker, etc.)

Cons: This is an upgrade, this is not a full key. It fully requires you to have a activated Windows 8/8.1 core installed to be able to use it. It all makes sense now, but learned the hard way that this simply isn't a system builder OS license. I simply thought "I got the discs, lets do this." *frown*

Other Thoughts: Just wish NewEgg helped describe this better. It explains itself well enough on the packaging, but not so much on this product page. I returned mine unused.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Good operating, system, boots up lightning fast and i have no problem with it. The upgrade to Pro was good to have considering the features you receive with it.

Cons: The only problem i have with the operating of the OS is the learning curve. It's kinda steep since you have to relearn where everything is and how to use everything.

2 out of 5 eggsThis is to upgrade Home Edition to Pro, only

Pros: Windows 8.1 is fine

Cons: I think the Newegg product page is very misleading for this product. This is to upgrade from windows 8/8.1 home to 8.1 Pro, only. This is not the full OS, you MUST already have windows 8 to do anything with this product. Other Retailers make this very clear, but Newegg's product pages makes it look like this is for a true windows 8.1 pro installation, but it isn't.

5 out of 5 eggsInstalled perfectly on an old laptop

Pros: I chose this because it is the latest version of Windows 8 and I was updating an older laptop that my son uses for some of his college work. What I have found is that Windows 8 (8.1, 8,xxx) installs very well with few if any driver issues on older systems as compared to previous releases. 8.1 works much better then 8.0 but still needs more refinement. The only wrinkle in Microsoft tablet offering is the RT version, it works well ... by itself ... but not with the rest of the windows offerings however that is another issue that has nothing to do with this one. The one thing that make this better is a 4 PC version for families.

Cons: Windows 8.1 is much better the the 8.0 (eight dot ZERO) version. The main problem with Microsoft is they change things for no reason this si true in the Office product as well as the OS. It takes time to get used to the "new" way it operates and the whole setup is not intuitive. Never the less Win 8.1 does work and does, eventually, provide a platform.

Other Thoughts: You can have Windows 8.1 start on the desktop by going to the Toolbar (right clicking) select "properties" select the "Navigation" tab look at the Start Screen selections and chose the first option "When I sign in or close all apps on the screen. go to the desktop instead of Start"

1 out of 5 eggswindows 7 or 8

Pros: windows 7 is much better

Cons: This is built for phones and is not as effeciant for gamers or desktop work it looks like viva windows 7 now. Many people will be sticking to windows 7 and not upgrading.as the blue screens and movability is terrible not worth the effort.
Windows 7 is good and nothing wrong with it as the should have built a better windows 7 instead of a little 5" screen operating system for your phone maybe a tablet. However, android is way better then windows 8 on a smart phone by far. Android has a the best store that is orderly and many free stuff there.
