    Hi, i'm going to replace my notebook (i3 cpu, Ati Mobility Radeon HD 5000 Series 512MB, 8GB ram) with a newer one, i was going to get this one (i7, Nvidia GTX 950M 4gb, 8GB ram), i can have it for about 800€, someone has it, what do you think about it ?
    I'm not really going to use it as a gaming notebook, i'll use it for developing, virtual machines,small video editing maybe, and sometimes games. It's good ?

    Yup, the specs are just fine for your purpose. The price is fine too. It can easily handle VMs and mid-range gaming. Go for it.
    What do you wanna know exactly?

    If someone has it so he could say me if it has some software problems, like drivers, bios, etc.
    For the pc i'm using now i can't manage to find a decent driver for the video card, ati gives a generic driver, and windows update gives a driver that crash the pc on start up.
    Also, i have on my microsoft account windows 10 pro that i got from insider, if i put my account on that pc will it be upgraded to pro ?

    its a nvidia gpu, so you can use geforce experience to get the drivers directly from nvidia
