I purchased a new MacBook Pro, and want to bootcamp Windows 10. Newegg is selling it for $99. Looking at Ebay, I'm seeing multiple listings for Windows 10, full downloads, for $10. Some of these sellers have good ratings and a high number of sales. Is it worth the risk? Has anyone here purchased Windows from Ebay before?

Decided to give it a try. The seller has 498 reviews @ 99.7% favorable. In the last 30 days he had 60 sales and all were favorable. 5 different comments were "The activation code was legit and worked perfectly". We will see....

Well for $10 if you get burned then at least it won't be too bad. I'm always leary of things that seem too good to be true though.

Windows 10 is cheap from the Friends and Family store (I have a friend who's an MSFT employee).

I think I could buy 10/year of Win10Pro for $25CAD each, and with 8 logins, be able to sell them for a profit. I think the home version is $10CAD, so what, 25 of them for sale? (or something like that - it's not very expensive as a digital download)

My point being that you could get a legit copy for that much - but in my experience I bought a key for Office 2013 from an ebay seller. It worked initially, but when I had to reinstall it failed. I contacted them and they reset it / gave me another key. I don't use it any more but that would be my only concern.
