Linux on Dell laptop confusion
I was pricing laptops at Dell and did not find any OS options except Windows. A site search for Linux returned just 2 Mini notebooks (I see now that I missed the Open Source link on the second page).
I went into chat with a sales rep and asked about linux. They sent me a link to a Linux Inspiron 1500.
Only problem was the price for this laptop was $30 higher then the exact same laptop with Vista installed!
I found a different link on this forum and now the price is $25 cheaper then the same model with Vista installed.
I guess my question is WTF? Am I missing something or is Dell playing silly games?
It makes sense to me to order the Vista system and get Vista (just in case) for $25. I was sort of planning to install Fedora on the laptop anyway since that is what I am used to and I think it runs a little faster once you get it configured.
