Unfortunately, the customization screen won't let me remove Windows entirely and save more.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Good marketing from HP
Windows 7 and windows 8 OEM costs the same money so how exactly are they justifying the $150, cause they have always just been overcharging?
I find this to be a little stupid, and irresponsible of HP. The biggest issue people have with Windows 8 is the Start Screen... so why not do your customers a favor and pre-install a Start Menu restorer (or better yet, develop your own), so that they can enjoy the Start Menu as they always have, but gain the enormous number of enhancements that the OS brings?
But no, it's instead: Let's sell you an outdated OS because of that one niggle with Windows 8 you don't like.
Totally agreed, Rob.

I assume they have some agreement with Microsoft to prevent them from adding a 3rd party start menu replacement.
LOL w8 sucks ass
My guess is they are doing this because there are a lot of people who have been saying windows 8 suck... however the real reason they say it suck is because of metro. As and OS is great, so it is metro that has given windows 8 a bad name so HP think going back to windows 7 will increase sales of their pc.
The thing is older pc's are still more then fine for you average users and they simply dont need to upgrade there pc.
I am still running 6-7yr old computers here at my work, after putting SSD's in them they are not slow or sluggish at all. I have no justification of spending 100k to upgrade because the increase just isn't really worth it.
Win-7 still works well here at my house. Can't see spending good cash on Win-8 when I don't need it.
I'd rather upgrade something else instead. (like a GPU or an SSD)
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
