Reclaimed licenses or refurbished product keys.

Lizosoft offer these product keys taken from discontinued PC units.
They can never depreciate, they are in-fact the same as when they were new.
Although we can legally sell these for the full retail price we choose not to.
We run a large discount of these keys as we believe it allows customers a nice incentive to move from lynx to Windows.
The product keys are sourced from European businesses upgrading there equipment.
As the product keys are tied to the old motherboards they normally die with the hardware.
However this is no longer the case, we can now legally reclaim that license and re-register it to another motherboard one last time.
It can take anywhere from 1-3 weeks to reclaim a product key from a PC unit registered as discontinued.
