Need help with purchase of new Windows 7 copy

Recently my laptop suddenly stopped working (it wouldn't boot). Took it to a PC shop and the guy told me I needed Windows reinstalled (I was running Vista). He did this for me, but installed 7 (Home Premium) instead. Anyway after a couple of weeks it started asking me for my activation key, and after a little digging on another forum I realised I'd been sold an unlicensed copy of Windows.
So I've got about a week to get a new activation key. My question is: do I need to buy this, at £110...
or can I get away with buying this, at £90?
Bearing in mind I don't actually need to install anything, just to use the genuine license which is included in the purchase.
