Upgrading from Win 10 home to Pro

I'm going to buy a new home desktop computer and they mostly come with Win 10 home installed.  I have the license for Win 10 pro.  Are there any issues upgrading from Home to Pro?

How much difference is there between an i5 and i7 processor

For the most part, you'll get faster CPU performance from Core i7 than Core i5. The majority of Core i7 desktop CPUs are quad-core processors, but so are the majority of Core i5 desktop CPUs. This is not always the case, as there are dual-core mobile Core i7 processors and many dual-core mobile Core i5 CPUs.

I'm not a gamer so is the extra cost in your opinion worth it for the i7?

If you are going to be doing video editing or graphic design or things like that then yes I would go for the i7 if you are just going to use the machine as a "business" machine and use Office, surf the web, watch YouTube etc... then the i5 is more than capable of doing that.
