    you will need a previous version of windows first to upgrade to, but is genuine windows upgrade

    You don't need a key to install and run W10 indefinitely, unless you wish to change the desktop background to a silly pic.

    Yes. Just some personalisation items will not be available to the user.

    Win10 for £1.89 or cheaper or just use win key off your laptop to put on your new PC.

    Yes, I'm using 1 key on 3 PC's right now. Just try.

    You can also still use a win7 key if you say you need the accessibility features

    ​I've just used this a few days ago on a new pc. no problems.

    Google all key shop, keys on there for £5 or ebay for probably less than that,

    PM'd a Win7 pro key from old Dell machine. Should work fine.

    If you want a legitimate version then Amazon often discounts it down to £75-80. It's £75.05 right now:

    I bought one from there myself, I was buying £500 worth of PC components, so £75 wasn't even in the top three most expensive bits.

    Why didn't you just create a bootable copy of win10 on an usb and use an old win7/8 key from a different device and save yourself £75?

    I don't have an old copy of Windows 7/8, the last defunct machine I bought was in October 2008 so Vista was current and that's what I bought for it.
