So I’m building a gaming PC for an extended family member. I’m trying to keep costs down since I’m not paying for it, and am curious about a way to get Windows 10 cheap. I know I’ve seen on various boards that people get it for under 50 bucks. I’m kind of skeptical of the legality and everything, so I’m curious about what your experiences are with this. Where do I go and how much should I expect to pay?
Cheapest way is to have Windows 7 or 8/8.1 already and you only need to pay like $100 to upgrade. That is the hands down cheapest I have seen it.
Buy from Kinguin. Any famous youtuber that does Tech hardware will say the same thing. It cost about $20ish dollars and you have a OEM key. The main differences between the ones from kinguin (OEM) and buying an retail key that is close to $200 is that the OEM version can’t be transferred to different PCs. Also a difference is MS won’t be giving you tech support on the OEM version.
The price difference also is because a windows key can be available in any country and the price of Windows is different in multiple countries.
