    I'm from the US but in Mexico now. I want to get a laptop here and it seems the laptops here are well in Spanish of course. I checked and saw few computers where they use windows 10 whether at the store or online site similar to ebay in the us.


    If i were to buy a laptop here in Mexico and the language is Spanish, is there a way to make the laptop in English? If so, would I need to a buy a new windows 10 version in order to do this? And would it need to be in English? I want to have another spare laptop to do other things like downloading and streaming etc. Of course if I were in the us, the easy thing is to buy it from amazon.com and have it shipped.


    Any advice on this? There are a few laptop that i check online that seem to have okay review. Im also buying a pretty basic laptop... thus its not like i5 or i7 etc. Its going to be an intel celeron on pentium processor. However, i don't want to be using a laptop where its in spanish and well everything is in spanish. I also believe that the keyboard is in spanish... physically? Thus it would be a bit different? However, as long as they keys are similar, im fine with it.

    Wait until Meltdown and Spectre CPU bugs are fixed by Intel/vendor otherwise your investment will be a waste.
    Best option is to try seeing Amazon or Best Buy

    you don't need to buy a new Windows product key, simply save the product key on the laptop that you are going to buy and install Windows 10 English in the same edition of the license (Home or Pro or Single Language) and you can activate just fine.

    Laptops there will be sold in the Language Region they are sold at. If you want a US language version then you have to go with Amazon or BestBuy online and that is they ship to your location or not will be up to their policies they have for that.

    Wrong. The key is not region limited. The user is free to use the key that is on his computer to install the same edition of the license in a different language! :rolleyes:

    To find out your Windows 10 Product key that's injected in your computer's motherboard:

    Download RWEverything and launch it as admin


    Click on ACCESS > ACPI Tables


    Then go to the MSDM Tab:
