    Dell Optiplex Nseries

    Anyone have any experience with these? Why are they less the the regular optiplex?

    What about the Dell Vostro?

    Haven't heard of the "N" series...but I love the Optis.

    The Vostro...it's an el cheapo line...note the 1 year warranty, and non North American support lines. Basically just a "Dimension" line with an Opti badge.

    Here we go catmandude:

    The open-source n Series desktops feature select popular models from the VostroTM desktop, OptiPlexTM desktop and Dell PrecisionTM workstation lines available with a copy of the FreeDOSTM open-source operating system included in the box, ready to install. It is not a Microsoft operating system and is not qualified for Windows licensing use under any existing Microsoft Volume Licensing Program (OPEN, Enterprise, etc.) Customers interested in a Microsoft® Windows® solution should purchase a Dell desktop pre-loaded with Windows Vista Business. Select n Series systems are also available with Linux.

    In order to boot this system, you must install an operating system. A FreeDOS media kit has been provided which will allow you to boot your system once installed. Please note that many common applications will not run and/or fully function using FreeDOS, and in order to run these applications, you will need to install the appropriate operating system and/or device specific drivers. Consult FreeDos.org or your chosen operating system vendor for compatibility details
