what is the difference between buying a laptop with or without the recovery media USB? Im picking up a Sager NP8651 and the vendors all offer win 10 pro without and with a' 64 bit usb recovery media'

Is it just a thumb drive with windows on it instead of a disk? What do i get if i dont get it, just a disc?

Well its through a reseller. Either Xotic pc or LPC Digitial. So if i have it right:

1) Basically witout is just a licence... no disk or any physical copy of anything if i need to do a fresh install right?

2) With just gives me a flash drive tha does what disks did in the past?

Assuming those two are correct. I guess even with the non-usb version i can d.load the install program/disc onto a usb drive myself if i need to reformat or anything right?
