In my case, I didn't get a whitebook because my mom wouldn't allow it. She
wanted me to be able to call up the OEM or go to an actual physical retail
store where I got it if there was a problem. Now, they won't give me
support with Linux anyway, but I was planning a dual boot at the time. OEM
does mean that you have a central source if you hit a hardware snag,
though. In a whitebook, you're getting parts from all over. Aside from
that, I can't find any whitebooks that don't come with Windows anyway.
