At least it has GNU/Linux. That’s worth some money and they are pushing it to half the world.

    Der Balrog there is a problem of course. Dell Linux offering cost is more than there Windows offering.

    Reality

    “But you see (to continue from the UEFI entry): vendors ARE free to offer computers with Linux.”

    Are vendors free. MS Windows is meant to cost a licensing cost. So where is it.

    LOL. An overpriced Ultrabook with a special premium Linux extra charge? Sure, not too shabby.

    You could save $50 by buying the Windows 8 version and adding the Linux stuff yourself:
