    Interesting, I wonder what AV they are going to bundle instead of the 60 day Nortons trial they normally include.

    Its BS, dont believe it
    This is from a company that recently said it was getting out of the PC business

    heres the quote
    HP’s Jim Mouton stated that they’re no longer in the business of “crapware” stating that the new models will come with “value added software, not malware or crapware.”

    what they hey is value added??
    Alot of the Crapwareware on laptops is actually HP,Toshibas,lenovos own software, more of that crap than anything else.

    Amazing list. Real bind. Never figured why they would want to make their machines look like dogs.

    Severely hacking the startups is always a good start.
