Regardless, I should point out I use Linux servers and Windows desktops and laptops, plus a pile of Android devices so I have no real allegiance to any specific platform except to use what I find appropriate for the task at hand.
Unless the laptops came pre-assembled as I didn't watch them do it.
doubtless they did..:) very very few "blank" laptops around..that were / are reliable :)
The people who ask me to put linux on their winboxen are definitely not upto "self build"..( mainly older people who's family have bought them a machine to keep in touch and look at pics of the grandchildren etc ) and they are usually laptops..for their use a good tablet with a decent keyboard would be better IMO..but MS don't make one of those either..not for sensible price..so there are a selection of ishiny things and some android slabs..I leave them "as is " and show them how to do the basics..
I don't charge for that kind of thing..I'm just the guy who can make computers work whose wife works with /takes care of the old folks / Alzheimer patients..:)
