So long as other companies continue to specify Dell/HP/Toshiba/ et al PCs for their standard workstation, this crap will live on. They all do it - attempt to optimize the "user experience" with their own ideas of what the customer needs - and all of them are dead wrong. The Value Added part of VAR is usually a misnomer, as is the O in OEM. I've had the best luck with store-bought PCs by erasing the hard drive as soon as it comes out of the box, installing a full version of Windows (not the selected parts chosen by the OEM), then re-installing the required hardware drivers from the recovery disk or drive. Accepting the default usually means accepting a defective, crippled product.
