Pre-installed Operating System Choices
Choose an operating system OS that you want pre-installed on your PC from the choices below. To order the OS you want, before you click 'Add to Cart' for your PC select that OS from the drop down menu.
We recommend Linux Mint or Ubuntu, hey it drops the price of the PC for you and they're very cool! If you want any other Linux distro, for example Manjaro, Debian, Rocky Linux or Fedora no problem just let us know we'll install that instead! Here's a website distrowatch.com that lists by popularity the many Linux versions or distros.
See how you save on a new PC with Linux and also how we choose the OS.

Microsoft Windows 11 Home 64-bit
Installed and installation OEM DVD included. For when you're forced to have Windows for some reason lol. We don't recommend it, it's a hassle to install, and Microsoft forces you to open a Microsoft account to install it, which they then need to verify from a cell phone or email address and they even require your birth date as of our last install on writing this! If you choose this option be prepared to provide us all that info otherwise we can't install it. Do you really want that lol. That's just one reason why we don't recommend Windows. We recommend Linux.
Dual Boot Linux and Windows
It'll be the computer cost with Windows plus the cost of a second solid state drive plus $39 for the dual OS installation service. Most of you will be fine with just Linux in our view! If you need this option just contact us.
Due to fast changing technology, supply factors and dropping prices we may substitute a part for another we consider the same or better with no increase in price.
