DELL has realised that the cutting of bloatware from its laptop range has been successful and its new range of Vostro laptops will continue to be crap software free. For ages Dell made a bob or two on the side from stuffing laptops with trial software. However in July 2007 the outfit decided to reverse the trend and offer laptops bloatfree. The company has intoduced three new laptops which will be preloaded only with software that buyers actually want.

Not before time. Let's hope that other companies follow suit.  8)

exactly how does Dell know what the customer wants?  to me they should include a cd with programs they think customers might want and let them make there own choice

@RReactor

er... they dont... so they just ship the machine with the OS.... and let the end user buy/download and install what they want....
doesnt take a giant leap of logic to figure that one out...
