Default Windows 7 / Best Buy issue

I bought a laptop during the boxing week sale. The specs on Best Buy's site showed that the o/s was Windows 7 Professional. It arrives and I see that it is loaded with Windows 7 Home Premier. Before I bought it I printed out the specs from BB website that says includes Window Professional, but now when I check the website it says Windows Home Premier. I have an old version of Autocad 2004 that I can't run on Premier. Do you think I have a leg to stand on trying to get BB to provide me with 7 professional?

Typically their return policy is 14 days for computers however i cannot remember what their christmas time return policy is, they may have moved it to be 21 or 31 days. You may want to check your receipt as if its outside the return period you're SOL. Otherwise i'd return the sucker or complain to them about the wrong posted specs.

Take then the screenshot of the specs and your receipt and MAKE them upgrade you to Pro. It's that simple, you did not receive what they advertised.

Edit: Not to mention the laptop is useless to you without pro.
