My mom needs a comp upgrade, but I thought I could save her getting Windows by buying myself a cheap netbook and using the key for her. I would then install linux on the netbook.
Does this make financial sense or should be just buy windows?

The key is tied to the laptop so you won't be able to transfer it to your mom's computer. Also netbooks are dead. Get a real laptop or get a tablet. --- MacBook Pro with Retina Display | 15.4" 2880x1800 | Core i7-3615QM @ 2.3GHz | 8GB DDR3 1600MHz | GT 650M 1GB GDDR5 | 256GB SSD | OSX 10.9 | Windows 8.1 Pro
