    Head over to <insert torrent/filehost site here> and download an ISO for an untouched version of the Windows 7 you have. Then use your OEM product key when re-installing it. I would imagine as long as you have the product key and if the version is truly untouced (nothing ripped out) it shouldn't matter.

    1. Smell it.
    2. Lick it.

    Turn it on , check hardware for warranty purposes. Begin installing own Apps etc .Keep installed OS until end of warranty period.

    1) Install Ubuntu
    2) Get angry because your wireless doesn't work
    3) Complain on Ubuntu forums
    4) Go back to Windows.

    Rip it apart, take out all the hardware I don't need, go buy a new heatsink for the CPU, and put it back together.

    Good idea, you'll get over 9000 battery-powered-hours then.

    The monitor tends to use a lot of power. I would recommend not using it while on battery power.
