Werner Heuser writes "Laptop and notebook manufacturer ASUS has officially declined to
offer their machines without pre-installed Microsoft operating
system last year. But Xtops.DE is now entitled to offer ASUS laptops
and notebooks without "Microsoft-Tax", if you order more than 10
pieces, an individual assembly is possible. We install the Linux
distribution of your choice or other UniX flavors. International
keyboards for ASUS machines will be free of charge."
