Around here some laptops come with “useful preinstalled things” like a trial version of Office or something. They charge some money for that. (Say $15 on top of their $300 laptop).
It took me 30 minutes talking to the sales droids i do wanted to purchase a laptop, but would not pay for their useful preinstallation.
After speaking with their manager who was still refusing to let the charges go. I proceeded to point at their sales sign and telling them “you see that sign where the shop states i can buy the laptop for that amount of money? Well, i do want to purchase it for exactly that amount of money!”
They finally caved in, opened the package, booted the laptop and started uninstalling the useful software, which took another 20 minutes. I told them i would nuke any contect on that harddisk drive anyway, but they refused to believe me and told me it was company policy. Oh whatever…
Back home i nuked everything and started installing Windows from a usb drive.
