Anyone knows where I can find a legit Windows 10 Pro retail version to purchase? I see a lot of supposed retail versions with CD or USB flash drive on Lazada, but not sure if these are legit considering that they going for at least 4 to 5 times cheaper than what I would expect. I am ok to buy from shops, but after looking around at a few price list, they normally only sell OEM version.

No Discussion of Pirated CD keys here. Or keys that cost less than original price. Yes, the key works, but getting them and selling them online for a profit is not.

Any discussion involving this will result in infraction point given. Thanks.

I supposed if I buy from MS store directly, it should be a retail version right? It is not clearly stated. Don't want to be paying 400 bucks for a dumb OEM version.

If you have budget for high end mobo or graphic, why not set aside some budget to get a legit copy of Windows?

If not consider prebuild desktop like Dell or Asus.
not many people can afford computer......let alone the software for learning.
i don't support pirated but they should make it more affordable for students to learn.

those pre-build includes the volume license price in their package. The specs is way below.... usable but not really for tertiary learning.....

True, some still use PC with dated hardware.
Or buy second hand PC from Caurosell.
The Windows either is unactivated or using
Prior Windows key to activate.

Students wise they can get Edu price but recommend is to buy a new PC which comes bundle with Windows and Office.

Desktop like from Dell or Asus some have decent but will cost a lot for gaming specs.

Students can always use Win 10 unactivated. There is also OpenOffice, LibreOffice for word processing etc which are free.
