Were could I buy Windows based computers without all the bloatware that all manufacturers install? Only way I know of is to build them yourself.

I am pretty sure that every OEM installs bloatware as it is a was to subsidize the price. The best way I can think of is to buy the computer that you want and then do a fresh install. However, Sony does offer when you build a computer on their site a "Clean install" option that costs an extra $50 but has no extra software installed just a clean version of Windows.

As others have said, just reinstall Windows when you get the computer. If the reinstall disc has all of the bloatware on it, you could download a copy of Windows and use that. If you torrent a copy, make sure you stay legal by using your product key and not a pirated one.

I think it's possible to request companies like Dell and HP to sell you 450 of their PCs without bloatware, perhaps for an extra charge.
But then again, at my old college, there are literally hundreds of computers all over the campus and there aren't any bloatware in these PCs, only software that's related to their respective sections in the campus, like CAD software of course.
