If you’re building a new PC, there’s a good chance you plan on installing Windows on it. This means that you’ll need to purchase a copy of Windows 10 or Windows 11, but if you take a look at Microsoft’s website, you’ll probably get a huge shock when you see the retail prices that the company is charging for Windows.

The good news is that the folks at VKCDKey are having a sale where you’ll be able to get your hands on an OEM license of Windows 10 Pro for as low as $12, or even Windows 11 for $24. Be sure to remember to use the VKPH code upon checkout to enjoy the 30% discount.

What is an OEM license?

You might be wondering how is it that VKCDKey is charging so little for Windows compared to Microsoft. This is because they’re selling an OEM license. OEM licenses are usually sold to computer manufacturers so that they can install Windows on the thousands of computers they make a day.

Obviously selling computer manufacturers a retail key would simply be too expensive for them, which is why OEM licenses exist. The downside to OEM licenses is that they’re typically tied to a computer’s motherboard so in the event you buy a new PC, you’ll need to get yourself a new license as well.

That being said, OEM licenses are generally a lot more affordable so even if you need a new key, it’ll still end up being cheaper compared to purchasing a retail key.
