    True, but does that then mean the system builder is allowed to use it for personal use? Here is where I'm not sure.

    What I am sure however, is that doing this with Win 8 OEM is totally legit. I've made my decision, Win 8 OEM it is. Cheapest way to get Win 10.
    1. Your not using it. Your testing it.
    2. The MS police is not going to knock down your door and arrest you.

    2. Really? Well thanks for clearing that up.
    3. No need, I'm clear that Win 8 OEM is legit.
