Yes you could do that, but these 'open source' notebooks are the bottom of the barrel. Anything slightly decent is not sold as 'open source' notebook, even though Dell notebooks like the Inspiron 6400 are also completely Linux compatible.
In the Netherlands there's actually a law that forbids companies to sell a product ONLY if you purchase another product along with it (which is exactly what Dell's doing, since you definitely DO pay a fee for the windows license).
