That's always been a concern of mine... they always seem excessive in terms
of price vs. specification and I don't understand this, because surely
building a machine WITHOUT Windows (and its costly licences, even
considering OEM) ought to be CHEAPER?

So why do Linux Emporium laptops not start at about £225 (if we consider
that you can buy a Windows one from Tesco and/or PC World for £299 ?
