Windows Laptops and Notebooks / Fake Windows on Laptops
There is an ongoing scam in Malaysia, I'm sure in other countries as well where computer vendors would sell laptops to you, claiming that it includes original version of windows. However, the laptop is actually a DOS version, but was pre-installed with a fake version of windows. The windows sticker is a fake sticker when examined closely. This scam is quite widespread so exercise caution when dealing with vendors as they don't care about repeat business from customers.

Make sure the Microsoft sticker is actually able to change color when viewed from different angles.
