Buying a new windows laptop ?

Buying a new laptop ?, Limited Budget ?, Should I Buy a laptop with Windows 11 Home ?

Let me address a common question that many of you may have.

I have always desired the Pro edition for my laptop, but due to budget limitations, I had no choice but to opt for the Home edition since laptops within my price range only came with the Home edition pre-installed. However, it's important to note that Windows 11 Home lacks several crucial features including BitLocker, Incoming Remote Desktop, Hyper-V, Private Catalog, Join Azur Active Directory, Join A Domain, Group Policy Management.

Nevertheless, there are alternative options to consider. Upon purchasing your laptop from a shop, from the Microsoft Store, you will have the option to upgrade to Windows 11 Pro by paying an additional cost of 6779 Rs (82 USD).

Alternatively, you could explore the option of running .bat file scripts to install Hyper-V and Group Policy Management, which are essential for connecting to my Hyper-V 2019 server.
