Where can I customize PC?

I am sick of these sites that say you can customize your PC but then they come with a bunch of crap pre-installed that you can't remove (that I know is built into the price).  Does anyone know of a place where I can truely customize a PC (laptop preferably)?

I want it to be strictly for business.  No fancy media card.  No fancy built in speakers.  No software besides OS obviously and whatever else you choose.

To get a truly customized laptop you would have to go to a small independant dealer.  Large firms make the profit on mass builds.

If it's software that is "boiling your bunny" ,  you just need to get hold of a basic laptop which covers your spec.  Then insert your Operating system disk and let it set itself up.

It's not difficult and can be done in a step by step approach.

That way you just get the operating system files you choose.

They have laptops that you can customize to a degee and order with NO OS (thus no bloatware) and then by an OEM OS or install an Linux OS to customize as you need.

Isn't there a difference between laptop and notebook?  I notice when I am customizing at the link provided, it is saying "Mobile processor" for the processors...

I wont recommend you buying laptop from other manufacturer because of hardware warranty
(life of pc).

When you buy a pc from hp, dell sony etc they have the default restore disk installation which contain extra softwares.

 All these manufacturer have now included a option in the disc to only install the operating sytem.

 Business laptop i would recommend dell. After you buy the laptop you can install just the o.s from disc or tell them to do it.

@ded9 I think you mean Netbook (with an "e"). In a netbook (typically emphasize compactness, long run time, lower performance) you will usually find Atom processors.

Laptop and notebook would be interchangeable.

As for a vendor, it's been my experience with Dell machines that if you're in the business devices (Latitude, Precision Mobile) you have options to get the machine with Bare O/S and system utilities only (no additional software). Down in the residential market though you get what you get....

By my oppinion, the best way is to use any brand web site store. HP, DELL. Just take a look:

http://www.shopping.hp.com/webapp/shopping/computer_series.do?storeName=computer_store&category=notebooks&series_name=g7t_series&a1=Screen%20size&v1=Over%2016.9

just click [customize and buy] button and choose components.
