The new notebook I'm getting comes with Windows 8. I need Windows 8.1 Pro. I see MS has an option to upgrade to 8.1 Pro from 8.1. But if you already have 8 can you go directly to 8.1 Pro or do you have to install 8.1 first?

Anytime upgrades (changing windows editions, core to pro, etc) aren't really upgrades in the same sense as going from 8.0 to 8.1. It's a relatively simple process that will copy over a few files, reboot and it's done. You can either change versions then upgrade to 8.1 or upgrade to 8.1 and then change versions.

I assume you're doing this via the "change editions" option in Windows 8 and not buying an 8.1 pro disc to upgrade from?
