Re: Way to refund cost of Windows License for new comp purchase?
Makes me wonder:
What is it that you need in a machine that you cannot get from System 76 or ZaReason or the other sites?
You might have added "self build"I bought an Ultrabook (ASUS UX31a) here in Mexico, from Telmex. It came with MS Windows, "7" no choice, good price.
Two things, I would have spent too much time chasing Microsoft for the money, and I wanted to try the "Zenbook" with Windows. WIN 7 is a terrible piece of work.
No option was offered. There is a way to recover the License cost (fee, ripoff etc),
but very difficult and time consuming. Is this practice legal ? In theory, yes.
Perhaps looking at the MacBook Air might be a better example. If you don't like OS/X,
well, thats' tough. Recover the License fee and switch to Linux ?
The Zen Ultrabook runs far better on Ubuntu 12.04.1, and OS/X is also a ripoff, think about it, although most Apple worshippers won't.
Pay now, or pay later, there's no free lunch.
