Didnt know if this should've gone in the Windows Forum, but not everyone uses windows on there pc's so here will have to do ;)

If your manufacture ain't on the list please state in a post what it is; i might have left one out :/

I have both an HP laptop and computer.
Bought the laptop as it looked shiny and had a Blu-drive drive :P
My pc was a bargain at £275, had everything i needed; 500GB, 3GB Ram, 512MB Dedicated Graphics.

Don't like the fact they chuck a lot of trial crap on your pc though :evil:

Sigh, wish i could choose the Apple option :(

If you're dealing with all the crapware on a new machine, I often nuke the drive and do a fresh install. If that's not an option, the wonderfully named PC Decrapifier can make cleaning it up a bit easier.

Crapware actually drops the price of a computer. The makers of the software pay to get it onto the machines, as a lot of it is trial (or at least, not the best version of the software); meaning people may pay for the full version. If it cost the manufactures money to put it on, they wouldn't bother. However, if I buy a machine, get a refund for the Windows, take the price cut from the crapware, and then wipe it and install Linux, I get the best of both worlds :>
