I need an LG Gram laptop with Windows 11 Pro preinstalled. Does anybody know when they likely are to be available? Any idea why they aren’t available now?

<p>I just bought an LG Gram 16 2in1 at Costco, it came with Windows 11 Home. If I want Pro I will need to use the store, or get a license separately and update the license key. For a few machines it might be easy enough to go that route, but if you need a lot you should check with LG directly.</p>
<p>Thanks for the reply, earlster. I need only one machine at this point. I believe that you are saying that there isn’t much friction going from Home to Pro. How about the cost, do I have to pay for the full Pro license, or do I get credit because I have Home?</p>
<p>I believe it’s $99 USD via the Store. You have the option of going up to Pro for Workstations as well, but that’s not really germane when talking about portables. Pretty much you buy the upgrade, it does a brief download, similar to adding a feature like Hyper-V, then after a reboot, you’re running Pro.</p><p><br></p><p>It stays with your MSA so you should always be able to reactivate your Pro upgrade after you reinstall.</p>
