Anyone know where I can buy a empty lap top (virgin) meaning no program in it ??Reason is I want to put my own programs in it and don't want to pay for programs I'm never gonna use.

Define no programs on it? do you mean no Operating system, or no extra programs like Norton or microsoft office?

Most of your laptops will come with Windows 7, you need an OS to operate, which includes items such as windows firewall and basic word processing. Most even come with trial software, which you don't pay for and expire after x amount of days unless you do pay for them. So along those lines, most computers rarely have extra programs you pay for-the only real thing you pay for is the operating system, which is next to impossible to purchase a laptop without one. Desktops you would pretty much have to build it yourself. Sorry.

There are some as in very few, computers that do come with Ubuntu right out of the box. Hard to find, and aren't any cheaper.
