Laptop with no OS installed.

I have been looking at a laptop specifically for Linux.
The only one I can find without an OS in the UK, is from Novatech.
Has anyone purchased one of these and how good are they.
Or does anyone have another suggestion for buying a new laptop with no OS as i do not want to give Microsoft any more money.
It will only be used for surfing the web and office work.
Thanks for taking the time to read this post.

How about a second hand laptop with an OS you can remove?

Pretty good specs, reasonably priced

Play Bonny!
