    Windows 7 Ultimate for 90 on ebay.....

    I wonder where they came from:

    http://www.dhgate.com/wholesale/windows+7+ultimate.html

    http://www.dhgate.com/microsoft-wind...5a7a51dcb.html

    These will be genuine keys being illegally sold, with professional counterfeit packaging I think. I mean, just look how genuine it looks!!!!

    Many will think they are running the real thing. Lots of these being drop shipped on ebay at the moment. Some from sellers with 100% positive feedback or using hacked accounts. A few who've bought them seem happy - of course M$ might de-activate at anytime or not at all. The risk you take....

    The packaging does look very authentic. Better than I've seen for most pirate copy attempts.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    I agree, they look the real deal, however being sent from China at that price they must be from a professional factory. Or pirates have plundered a cargo ship!

    I don't think you can trust anything from China to be real. You can get some great counterfeit/copy/replica stuff from Chinese sellers, but it will never be as good as the real thing.

    Got a white PS3 dualshock controller from there, counterfeit of course, looks almost the same, unless taking a closer look, and after analysing the whole thing, it was a bit crap, although only 20.

    Btw, the shipping for the Windows DVD is huge, more expensive than Windows itself.
