When I get a new laptop I always put on one of those clear stickers intended to go on top of labels to prevent the product key sticker from rubbing off. I'm writing this on a netbook (purchased when netbooks were still a new thing) and the product key label is still as readable as the day I bought it.

Also--I just re-read what I wrote, and perhaps I could've been a little clearer:

You can use a Windows 7/8/8.1 key to activate Windows 10, then wipe 10 and reinstall without having to re-enter the key. If you're on 7 and activate, you will have to re-enter the key...it's the Windows 10 activation process that sends out the machine's unique fingerprint. It's only once 10 has been activated that you can skip the key on further reinstalls.
