And this is why I'd prefer to buy a laptop or tablet directly from Microsoft. OEMs are doing an increasingly bad job, with everything from hardware to software. The exception I can see is Lenovo, which is the only OEM I'd buy anything from.

A fresh install of Windows is about 10 minutes from a USB thumb drive, which is not much longer than unboxing the computer, I guess. At least that's how I solved that problem usually ;)
