If you are buying a brand new computer, I advise you to buy something with Freedos (a windows 10 home preinstalled license costs roughly 110$), and you can use Maher's windows 7 or windows 10 (available in the previous message) then.

The only computers I've bought that have Windows 10 preinstalled are laptops, and I don't see a separate entry anywhere as a payment for Windows 10 (usually Home). In fact I've read that the fact that the computer has W10 plus all kinds of preinstalled garbage actually lowers the price. When I buy a laptop, the first thing I do is disable secure boot, kill off the pre-installed "authorized" bootup version in the BIOS, then remove all partitions and start from scratch with a pirated version of W10 Pro. I have yet to see a laptop available for sale with a clean hard drive.

As usual, your comment was very clever. I'll have to find serious arguments. Actually you don't see separate entry to pay for your embedded windows 10 indeed. That doesn't mean you don't pay for it.
When I bought my computer 5 years ago, I chose a computer with freedos. One year later, the same configuration with windows 10 was more expensive.
Now let's take 2 similar computers, same brand, same price, same processor on 2 different websites. But the first one has freedos, the second one has windows 10. I consider that the 1st one should be more expensive because it has a geforce rtx 2060, the second one has a gtx 1660 ti. The first one has a 256Gb ssd vs 512Gb for the second one though. Note that the second computer is a promotion product too.
The rtx 2060 card is 70€ more expensive, and the 512 Gb ssd is only 30€ more expensive. Therefore, the second computer should be 40€ less expensive. Is it the price for windows 10? Maybe.
First computer:https://www.ldlc.com/fiche/PB00279525.html
second computer: https://www.fnac.com/PC-Portable-Msi-GP75-Leopard-9SD-1070FR-17-3-Intel-Core-i7-16-Go-RAM-512-Go-SSD/a13808134/w-4


Note that a new version of windows 7 will be available soon too.

Well, some MSI laptops are not shipped with windows. And they are not "lower end". But thy are rare indeed.
Look at this one, shipped with freedos: https://www.ldlc.com/fiche/PB00279525.html
Actually, if it was less expensive, I would buy it. But after 5 years, my PC is still working perfectly. And compared to this one, besides a better graphic cards and a slightly better processor (I have a i7 6700hq), I have the same configuration. Note that I bought my computer with Freedos, for approximately 1000€.

As far as I know here in the USA laptops with clean hard drives aren't available for sale. Naturally I mean major businesses who sell them for a living. They'd even be hard to find in a small store because they can buy them only with all the unwanted garbage on it. I keep reading that those people who write the pre-loaded garbage pay suppliers to preload their shitt and this lowers the price of the laptop for the consumer. Naturally the garbage won't run without it. I would actually pay more money for a new laptop with a clean hard drive.

Incidentally, when it comes to Windows remember Micro$haft's goal is not so much to sell copies, it's Windows everywhere! I firmly believe the price suppliers pay Micro$haft isn't that much, and is easily offset by the amount they receive from the garbage software people.

Also, what's the point of having Freedos instead of Windows? What progs can you run with that?

My PC is also 5 years old. When it comes to upgrades I have a golden rule: If your PC (or phone) still does what you want it to do, it is not obsolete. As if this writing that's my case with both. I upgrade hardware as needed.

5 yrs is not ancient nowadays since they rehash same hardware for another 3 years with increased prices just like Intel does. I'm thinking of getting AMD laptop and desktop rig since my PCs are like crap once I disable everything in favor of security against Intel Spectre like architecture bugs. I will HyperThreading and faster processing.

If there is freedos, there the hard drive is not clean. Freedos is some kind of Ms-Dos. Basically, you can’t run anyhting with it. But you can install Linux, or windows.
You always speak with the wisdom of the lion. I wish I could be with you and some users of the forum in a remote place.

I don’t understand why laptops are more expensive than 5 years ago. My current laptop with a i7 9750h (instead of a i7 6700hq), a newer graphics card, and a ssd (I already have one) is now 400€ more expensive. Note that originally, I had only 8Gb Ram, I added a ram bar. As long as my laptop is working, I’m going to wait.


Note that I made a switchless installer for Easeus partition master (+activation). But the installer is not completely silent as it launches a website at the end. Maybe one of you can do something about it. It would be tidious to do a nsi installer. It’s a simple winrar sfx installer.
