How can I return a Microsoft License delivered with a Dell computer?
I'm in the process of upgrading the kit in my home office. I've upgraded my server and PC as well as my wireless router. The next bit of kit I need to replace is my ThinkPad R50e which I've had since 2005. Since 2006 however it has ran Linux and not Windows.
While I've been shopping around, I am hoping to get another ThinkPad as the one I have at the moment has been good to me and never let me down. However, when I've gone on to the ThinkPad website, I'm unable to buy a laptop without having Windows installed on it. As I won't be using Windows on it and Linux will be thrown on there as soon as the power button is pressed, I'm really paying extra money for something I don't need. I've spoken to Lenovo by email and asked them if it was possible to buy a laptop that either has Linux pre-installed or no operating system installed at all. They said no, so I'd have to run Windows.
But when you buy a new laptop you are given a EULA, and really if you don't accept the terms & conditions set out in it aren't you entitled to give the software back for a refund? Or does this not apply in terms of operating systems and laptops?
