So I have been thinking about buying a laptop only because I could get a refurbished one from somewhere like Walmart with a price range of 90 - 150.

I have seen Windows 7 all the way to Windows 8.

I only want the Operating System, The laptop would be great for coding anywhere and everywhere, I would just install linux on the laptop.

And install the Windows Operating system on my Desktop.

This is something I have been thinking about from time to time.

I am operating under wine/linux it can be complicating to code in c++ in linux for windows and I honestly hate it


Just a thought. I would like to see what others think about it Smile

If the key is OEM, you can't just use it. I "had an OEM key from somewhere" that won't work when installing but on a cracked windows, it activated online (i don't remember exactly what i did),

So be prepared for that. I would just buy the key instead = less hassle, i think the price is 99$ last i checked

The thought is promising. As well if for a few more dollars like 20 to 50 I'd rather get a laptop in this purchase instead of just an OS.

I appreciate that pointer Smile, I will have to keep an eye out for that.

Windows has a utility that can change your activation key - slmgr. But if you're at that point you could just skip that step...
