    Windows 10 Pro Education


    Hi,

    I've been offered a HP 250 G7 laptop by a seller on one of the internet forums. This is a fairly low spec machine (TN screen, 4 GB ram, 128 Gb hdd and no cd/dvd drive) but is new and the price is attractive however one of the pictures he has posted shows it running Windows 10 Pro Education. I'm more concerned about the machine than the seller as he has a lot of 100% positive feedback...

    How practical is W7 Pro Education for home use? Presumably it has been installed using a volume licencing key so if I had to re-install at any time would that be a problem - or would JellyBean show me the keys? Could I change the Education version to a normal W10 Pro, would that involve any costs?

    I'm really out of my depth here and would welcome some advice.

    :)

    I've not had an opportunity to test Pro Education edition yet but I am running normal Education on a Hyper-V virtual machine and on dual boot with Pro on a laptop. Basically Education is exactly as Enterprise, meant for domain or Azure AD use. Main differences when compared to Pro are missing Cortana and no possibility to use Microsoft account as initial user account when setting up Windows, although when selecting initial user as local domain user a normal local account will be created which can then be switched to a Microsoft account instead of joining a domain.

    Native Windows apps in Windows 10 Education edition are the same than in Pro edition, Cortana being the only exception.

    If you already have setup Windows 10 Pro on your machines with a customised image I can see no benefits in doing the job again deploying an almost similar OS. This is of course only my personal subjective opinion based on what I know at the moment; I have no knowledge or insight about what additional features (see highlighted part in quote below) Pro Education might be and if they would be reason enough to upgrade to Pro Education.
