I want to rebuild a laptop for my son, and need a windows 10 licence. ( I used to have MSDN but that has been revoked).

Where is the best place to go for these?

Cheap is good, sketchy not so much. But saying that I have been using MSDN for years, so not 100% legit

What's on the laptop now? You can still upgrade a legit activated install of Win7 to Win10 for free.

There is no OS, it has been flatened.

It's not that good. It doesn't acknowledge at all that most low-priced keys are OEM keys and selling/buying/using them is a T&C violation if you buy them on their own.

If it has had w10 on in the past, there's a good chance you dont need a new icense, it'll just pick it up when you connect to the internet.

Well that depends on your definition of best really doesn't it? I like Best, it's not the most expensive but I like how smooth it is and it tastes better than lager.

It is best to get a licence from Microsoft. It ties to your account and you can download it again at any point. It is best.
