Oh, I have no doubt they're for real. That's the problem with smaller
OEMs. You can't live on razor thin profit margins.

ZaReason also has no-OS options (they're a Linux
vendor). Again, prices aren't the cheapest.

I personally buy my laptops by going to Staples, Circuit City, Best
Buy, etc. with the latest OpenBSD-current to check its dmesg (and I
highly recommend this) and blasting Windows off the HD as soon as I
get home, but the OP asked for no-OS laptops.
