    Default Dell Laptop Without OS

    I want to buy a Dell Inspiron laptop with i3 processor 3gb ram...but i dont want the Windows 7 OS....How can i get a dell laptop without the OS and Mcafee....I could not do it online...I belong to bhubaneswar and here there is no Dell Exclusive store either..

    The Resellers are selling Inspiron laptops with DOS and i3 processor with 3gb ram for 37k, which i find kinda costly...Please suggest

    DOS is the bare minimum that you will get on the laptop. After that you can install Ubuntu Linux

    I think what he means is... how can he buy a laptop online (or from DELL directly) and not the reseller without OS (or with dos/linux).

    You'll just have to contact Dell support I think. Give them a call and find out...

    Thats why I told you, call up the customer care number of Dell and speak with them directly. I am sure they will help you out.

    Thumbs up Re: Dell Laptop Without OS

    yes (i hope u r not going to try installing android or simbian OS on ur laptop !! lol..)

    jokes apart.. dell recommends Windows 7 (just like any other hardware manufacturer) .. and most of the hardware works major linux distros (at times with minor tweaking).

    if u only wish to use indows. u can buy a DOS based dell laptop blindly...
