Wow - exactly what I'm looking for, but I was hoping to buy from Dell direct to use Amex benefits. Any chance of getting Dell to price match this?

I priced this out on the Dell site, and it was $685.95 for the same configuration.

I'd prefer to buy from Costco myself because of their return policy and their two year warranty that doubles to 4 years if you use your Costco Visa.

If you don't need i7, the i5 version of this laptop (with 12GB RAM) was on sale for $500 at Costco a month ago, and will likely go on sale again in the future.

Windows/Cortana Search for "Activation Settings" => "Change Product Key" => Enter a Windows 10 Pro Upgrade Key

Your computer will think a little bit and restart as Windows 10 Pro.

Professional and Ultimate (including 'Upgrade' licenses) keys from older versions of Windows work too (eg Vista Ultimate, or Windows 8 Pro).

Thank you very much.
Does the windows recovery code in secondary storage also upgrade to 10 Pro? or will it stay at 10 Home?
TIA.

You mean the Windows 10 key stored on the motherboard BIOS? That key stays as 10 Home.

So if you full wipe and reinstall (BIOS boot into external media like a USB drive or CD and force wipe the drive), it will start back as 10 Home and you will have to re-enter the Pro key.

In contrast, if you reinstall from within Windows (either Media Creation Tool or Advanced Recovery-including 'keep nothing') the installer will preserve the Pro key.

Understood. Thank you very much.

Just picked up the 14" HP with i5 for $549. Needed the smaller screen for portability. I'm guessing the i5 vs i7 won't have that much of a difference for streaming videos music and basic browsing.
