Of course, you also get a 13 '' notebook without Windows, but only with expensive high-end models, which are more than three times as expensive as Your devices.

Thank you for your feedback.

We only offer the ES1-332 only with Windows 10 operating system.

You can purchase another notebook without operating system from us.

In the 13 "range, we can offer you the Acer Aspire S13 S5-371-7771.

We hope we could answer your question and wish you a nice weekend. Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Acer ES1-331-C0YK I bought in May 2016 by 270 EUR.
Acer ES1-331-P498 I bought November 2016 by 301 EUR.
This costs 945 EUR. That's more than three times as much.

If the planned change takes more than 1 year,
To finance 4 notebooks for 300 EUR,
Then I will probably not finish this change with 2 notebooks for 945 EUR each.

In addition, it has significant disadvantages, the CPU has 15 W DTP instead of 6 watts as the N3150.
Also the old keyboard layout of the 331 series, the new keyboard layout of the 332 series Is more practical.

Thank you for your feedback.
Unfortunately, there is no current 13 "notebook without operating system, which has a desired low consumption with low power.

We hope we could answer your question and wish you a pleasant day. Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.



  The Empire Strikes Back


May 2017: The purchase of new Linux notebooks for the entire family is brutally stopped. Not a single economical 13'' notebook without operating system is more to be found in the offers.

Request at Acer Austria
How is it possible that within a quarter a large range of economical 13'' notebooks without operating system suddenly only with Windows is available?


The duel of free browsers
How did the pre-installed MSIE Microsoft Internet Explorer browser work against the other free browsers? From 88 to 5 in 14 years!


Why? Did Microsoft intervene?
Why does the offer of economical 13 '' notebooks without operating system completely disappear? In January 2017 all major manufacturers had been present.
