Post Laptops preloaded OS
Can you order Laptops without the OS? I didn't see that option, at least on Dell's site.
The preloaded SW eye candy tends to irritate me.

Your not going to find that anywhere and it isn't going to save you money either even if you could.
Just get the windows 7 and if you would like to use linux or something else you still have a windows 7 serial
on hand.

For my customers, I give them an option for their new laptops to clean up and get rid of all the "bloatware" and streamline the OS. It usually takes about two to three hours and none have complained so far. It's the next best thing to just reformatting the hard drive and re-installing Win7.
