Sounds like Dell is giving consumers of these windowless PC's the shaft.
They should pass at least a partial savings to the consumer.  They might as
well bundle Windows with the PC, just not install it.  At least you would
have the license to show for the extra $$$.

An interesting quote from the article...

"N-series PCs will cost the same as PCs that ship with Windows, a Dell
representative said."

I don't get it. So Dell is going to jack up the price of the box to cover
the difference?
