My computer came with a copy of Windows 7 Home Premium. If I upgrade it to Windows 7 Professional, what will happen to Media Center? Will it be deleted because it's not available in Professional, or will it be kept because I also have a license for Home Premium? (or just because it was already on there)

Media Center is included with Home, Pro, Ultimate and Enterprise so it will not be removed during an upgrade to Pro.

Windows 7 "Anytime" Upgrade is the easiest least expensive way to upgrade, be sure to keep your anytime upgrade key somewhere safe.

Confirmed here. I will only buy Professional on any Windows OS and Win7 x64 comes with Windows Media Center as well. – Fiasco Labs Jun 2 '12 at 17:13
