Common sense says install HP
Pride says go for Pro!
If I sell i'll get a good price for either i'm sure (brought on intro promo) and if I don't i'll have a spare licence which I suppose can never be a bad thing.
Faced with this dilemma what would you guys do?
Depends on the current deal. If you are buying at the "normal" prices, go for HP and if you find that you really need something that only Professional can offer, do an Anytime Upgrade. There is no reinstallation. Just run the process, pay the upgrade fee and the process unlocks the Professional features.
Heck you could decide to add the home network next year and then perform the upgrade.
