I was concerned about updating to 10 when it was free. I had a huge battle with Best Buy to take back an ASUS computer that had Windows 8 that I HATED. I was able to buy a new HP unit from Best Buy with Windows 7 Professional on their web site (though they said were not available), I also found a new, unused copy of 7, which remains sitting on my desk.


Now I hear that 10 is much better, and needed for its security apps installed, etc. Now that I've ignored all the offers of a free upgrade (I wasn't going to be fooled again).


Can anyone tell me how I can, at the most reasonable cost possible, upgrade to Windows 10?
