I was browsing thru the Dell website, looking at their new home PC's. I\nwent thru the customize selection, picking and choosing my way thru the\noptions. Actually, I have no intension of buying a new computer. I was\njust curious to see what is currently available from Dell and how much they\ncost.\n\nOne thing I didn't see was the option to include an operating system CD\n(or DVD) so that you can format the hard drive. Plus a CD (or DVD) that\ncontains all the drivers. Does Dell still make that available when you buy\na new PC? That is very important to me.\n\nWhen I get a new computer, one of the first things I do is format the\nhard drive to remove all the 'crapware.' Doing this really improves the\nperformance of your machine. My 15 month old E510 had a ton of junk\npreinstalled that slowed down the computer considerably, as well as\ngenerating error messages and system crashes.
