    I just bought a 2017 Surface Laptop with and intel core m3-7Y30. It obviously came with windows 10 s, and I have the option to upgrade to windows 10 pro.

    I like how fast the machine runs with windows 10 s, but I'd like to be able to download Google Chrome and other applications.

    So heres my question - can this laptop run windows 10 pro efficiently? Or if I upgrade will it dramatically reduce how fast the computer is?

    I'm also not sure if there is a way to go back to windows 10 s if I upgrade to pro, so I want to make sure its a good decision.

    Thank you!

    The differences between Windows 10 S and Pro are negligible, save for some arbitrary limitations on 10 S (which make sense to some), performance will be the same.

    You could just go to Pro, not install anything and likely not notice a difference.
