What's wrong with this picture?

Okay, short post. I went to Dell's website to price two versions of the same product, the Latitude D520 laptop. I just wanted a low-end laptop that will work as a Linux test station.

If I price a base configuration laptop with Windows, it's $599.

If I price the same laptop with Free-DOS, it's $699.

Why exactly am I paying $100 more for a computer *without* Windows?
