OEM's also have to manage overhead, pay people to assemble the thing, and possibly have it shipped out. That extra $15/$20 for an optical drive can make the difference between profitability and losing money.

People would pay $15 more for an optical drive...

Everything about the system seems good until you read "No optical drive"

ALTHOUGH on the good side, there isn't much use for an optical drive in Linux. At least for the type of people who will be buying this system.

Think about it? How many linux programs do see on the shelf of walmart, bestbuy, or frys?
