BS095NIA

What means factory installed non-windows?

Does it have advantage ? Or Disadvantage?

Hi:

 

Below is the link to the product specs for that model.

 

https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c05561291

 

It comes with FreeDOS 2.0.

 

So the advantage of buying a PC with FreeDOS would be if you plan on running Ubuntu on it, or if you already have a supported windows operating system with a product key you can install on there.

 

If you have to buy Windows 10 for example, then it would be cheaper for you to buy a notebook with W10 already included, since HP pays much less for volume licensing of windows than you buying a single copy.
